11 Hilarious ‘Things Tim Howard Could Save’ Memes On Twitter

Despite the USMNT’s devastating World Cup loss to Belgium in Tuesday’s World Cup knockout round, goalkeeper Tim Howard was named the ‘man of the match’ and is being hailed an American hero.

Howard had 16 saves, the most during a World Cup game in 50 years, and he’s only the third player to win man of the match while on a losing team. Someone even temporarily changed the Wikipedia entry for U.S. Secretary of Defense to ‘Tim Howard’.  We think it should have stayed up a bit longer.

So it’s really no surprise the  social media world exploded after his stellar performance. Here are the top eleven #ThingsTimHowardCouldSave we found on Twitter.

11. An unhappy baby daddy?

10. Our Fear Of Swimming In The Ocean

9. The Titanic

8. Childrens’ Innoncence

7. Ned Stark’s Life


6. The Mesozoic Era

5. Lebron From Lance Stephenson

4. Peyton Manning’s Pride

3. Taylor Swift From Kanye West

2. Janet Jackson’s Dignity

1. Luis Suarez From Himself

So, the U.S. lost the game, but Howard won the internet and the hearts of America.
