Generally while watching professional sporting events, there's no wanting for peak athletic physiques to look at. With all those football helmets and pads on the Super Bowl 50 players, however, it's like what even are bodies, you know? Thankfully at this particular game, there was a jacked referee.

His name Clete Blakeman. (Clete.) And Clete is fit.

Check out those forearms, wow.

Wow, what a fit torso.

Those stripes are elongating, not like you need 'em, Clete. 

Cool lats! You can call a flag on my play any day.
