One person went so far as to change the Wikipedia page of Chuck Hagel, the U.S. Secretary of Defense. Hagel's photo was replaced with a pic of Howard making a save.
That prompted Hagel to phone Howard yesterday to thank him for defending the U.S. at the World Cup. And you thought old Chuck didn't have a sense of humor.
If that wasn't enough, there is a petition on Whitehouse.gov asking the Obama Administration to change the name of Reagan National Airport to Tim Howard National Airport.
Finally, there is a great collection of photos at #ThingsTimHowardCouldSave.
They feature Howard superimposed into well-known scenes. Among them are Howard diving between Jack Ruby and Lee Harvey Oswald . . . Howard reaching out to stop Luis Suarez from biting Giorgio Chiellini . . . Howard stopping an army of sperm from fertilizing an egg . . . Howard preventing Lance Stephenson from blowing in Le-
Bron James' ear . . . And, Howard keeping abreast of the situation by strategically placing his hand over Janet Jackson's exposed body part to shield Justin Timberlake - and a nation of Super Bowl halftime viewers - from the greatest wardrobe malfunction of all time.
