Why are American line umpires so unattractive?

in comparison to European, Austrlian, etc..?

The either geriatric, fat, obese, with thin no-muscles legs, with ugly hair (looking like un-washed) or something else... It really is hurting my eyes.

Is it something different how they pick them in the States?

They're umpires, not supermodels.

They are not supermodels in Europe either, but they are not unattractive

Re: Why are American line umpires so unattractive?

Should you really be focusing on line umpires while watching a tennis match?

And if your life were gold, how long do you think you'd stay living?

All the latin umpires like Carlos Ramos and Alves are fine.

I too should go to bed, but the line umpires!?

Interesting idea I guess, just not for me.
