Pushups. That was what Ed Hochuli began doing, or so he told Jeff Darlington of NFL.com, as soon as he heard reports that a deal between the NFL and the union officials was close early on Wednesday. Of course, he did.

Now that the NFL and the referees' union have agreed to end the lockout, football fans can now tune in to Week 4 games to see everyone's favorite muscular official (as well his competent colleagues).

Edward G. Hochuli.

As reports emerged that a deal had been agreed upon on Wednesday evening, Hochuli's name began trending on Twitter. Let's just say that a lot of folks are eager to see his biceps after three weeks of replacement refs.
