Tim Howard is a god (or at least, the Secretary of State). The US Men’s National Keeper reached hero status following the US vs. Belgium World Cup game yesterday, despite the US’ loss. Howard deflected a record 16 shots on goal during the game, leading many to call it the greatest World Cup performance by a keeper ever.
But then, because this is America, the internet exploded.
Tweets, Instagrams, Facebook posts and the like heralding Howard as a national hero poured in, and thus, the #ThingsTimHowardCouldSave meme was born.
We rounded up some of the best tweets from the hashtag, for your grieving pleasure.
