Tim Howard mania has taken off in the United States.
After the USA goalkeeper’s stunning 16-save performance during his team’s elimination from the 2014 FIFA World Cup on Tuesday, the Internet was abuzz with praise for the 35-year-old. But one hashtag trumped all of the others.
“#ThingsTimHowardCouldSave” went viral on Twitter on Wednesday, and users pooled together their best scenarios of what disasters the star goalie could have stopped from happening.

After Jimmy Graham lost $5 million for being a tight end, Cleveland Browns “pass catcher” Jordan Cameron thought he could change his Twitter bio.
Thought no one would notice that minor change in the bio. Thanks @darrenrovell for calling me out.—
