Tim Howard is an American hero right now. Even though the U.S. Men’s National Team lost to Belgium in the World Cup round of 16, Howard, the team’s goalie, played out of his mind in that game.
The U.S. probably should have lost 13-1 instead of 2-1. They didn’t because of Howard.
And let’s face it. The U.S. isn’t a soccer nation, so getting to the round of 16 in the World Cup and losing there is actually an accomplishment.
That’s not to take anything away from Howard because his performance was one for the ages, regardless of team or nation.
So anyway, everybody wants to be Tim Howard’s bro. Like this dude he meets in some airport. Dude gets the handshake and then decides he better go in for the hug.
Tim Howard does not like to be hugged by strangers.
