Yesterday was an emotional roller coaster for US Soccer fans. After a tough game against Belgium and many last-minute close-calls, Team USA finally succumbed and ended their run in Brazil. Despite the loss, we all were treated to one of the greatest World Cup performances of all time – Tim Howard’s epic goal keeping. After setting a new World Cup record by making 16 saves, Tim Howard was declared an “American Hero” and the internet responded accordingly.
Immediately following Tim Howard’s stellar performance, the hashtag #ThingsTimHowardCouldSave took off yesterday, but caught fire today with 138k mentions.
