Who cares about a LeBron James meme when it’s Tim Howard’s time to shine? Although Team USA failed to defeat Belgium during yesterday’s World Cup match, Howard has become the talk of the world.

Howard, the goalie for Team USA, is not only still trending nationwide but has also been memorialized in a meme. Twitter’s #ThingsTimHowardCouldSave is pure genius when it comes to celebrating the saves Howard made during yesterday’s match. The memes feature Howard saving everything from Simba’s father from The Lion King to even helping out Kanye West.

Here’s a sampling of some of the best of #ThingsTimHowardCouldSave:

If only Howard could go back in time, Kanye and Taylor Swift’s incident wouldn’t have happened:


And the band could have played on and lived if only Howard had been there to save the Titanic from sinking:

When Howard isn’t busy saving goals, maybe he could save our country, too?

Some crafty person decided to change Howard’s Wikipedia entry to show that he’s also the secretary of defense of the United States of America.


Forget about Hillary Clinton in 2016—my vote goes to Tim Howard!
