During the USA vs. Belgium game at World Cup 2014 one thing was clear: Tim Howard could save nearly anything.
Despite the eventual loss of the U.S. team to Belgium, there was no denying that team goalie Tim Howard was on fire. Saving 16 shots on goal, Howard set a new World Cup record. The Internet being the Internet immediately jumped in with a new meme and hashtag, #ThingsTimeHowardCouldSave. If only he had been available in different scenarios over the centuries, the world would be a very different place. We’ve gathered up 10 of the best ones so far, but there are sure to be more throughout the day.
