17 Signs Tim Howard Is The Hero This World Needs

Well, for starters, he's the man.

So. Tim Howard.

He's a beast goalkeeper from New Jersey.

You might recall how he saved 16 goals in one game last year. SIXTEEN.

Which means he's a world-record holder.

1. It seems the laws of gravity don't apply to him. That's a plus!
