Tim Howard, goalie for the US Men's National Soccer Team

How do you define success? Perhaps by becoming a internet meme. Although the US fell short against Belgium in the World Cup, Tim Howard’s legend grew.

After US goalie Tim Howard‘s record-setting performance in the World Cup match against Belgium where he made 16 saves (blocked goals), people across the nation took to the internet to honor the Secretary of Defense’s incredible effort. While Team USA fell short against Belgium 2-1 in the knockout stage, born was the great meme. The sinking of the Titantic? A thing Tim Howard could save. The Matrix’s Neo stopping a flood of bullets coming at him? Just another thing Tim Howard could save.
