Ed Hochuli explains that play was delayed because refs “were stretching out balls”

Ed Hochuli has a bit of a habit of over-explaining some of his rulings as an NFL official, sometimes to a fault. Hochuli gave a very strange explanation during the fourth quarter of Monday night’s Seahawks-Saints game, when his stated that play had been delayed because the referees “were stretching out balls.”

He probably meant SWITCHING out balls, but it’s funnier to imagine the refs calling time to make sure their testes are nice and loose.
