United States soccer goalkeeper Tim Howard has made quite a splash with his performance in the World Cup this year. He capped the tournament off with a 16-save performance in the U.S.’s match in the Round of 16. Though the Americans fell to Belgium 2-1 in this contest, Howard recorded the most saves in a World Cup game since 1966. This feat has left many people in awe. As a way of paying homage to Howard, they have come up with innovative concepts of things that Howard can save. They have taken to the Internet to share their ideas. One of the most popular trends is the hashtag #TimHowardCouldSave. Some of the tweets show Howard being the hero in movies, such as The Lion King, Bambi, Jaws and Independence Day. Other images depict Howard saving the day on historical tragedies. This list includes saving the sinking of the Titanic and deflecting the planes from the Sept. 11 attacks. Here is a ranking of the top 10 #TimHowardCouldSave tweets:
