After losing 2-1 to Belgium on Tuesday, the U.S. men’s national team may go home without the trophy, but they will go home knowing the power behind their goalkeeper Tim Howard.
Save after save emerged, some more spectacular than others which caught the hearts of the people of Twitter. They speculated upon the things Tim Howard could save and prompted a Twitter campaign with some going so far to buy Twitter followers so that their posts could have a better chance of reaching Tim when he came home to Twitter.
