Tim Howard isn’t just the hero that America deserves but he’s also the hero that America needs. Unless you aren’t internet savvy, you definitely know about the twitter hashtag #thingsTimHowardcansave. If you don’t, google it. It is the by far the best sports related meme going right now and it was influenced by Howard’s monumental performance in the World Cup in the US vs. Belgium match. There have been many hilarious photoshops that have been done that are based on the meme. Let’s take a look at a few:
I cried tears all day yesterday from scrolling through twitter.
However, it got me thinking…..COULD TIM HOWARD SAVE THE NEW YORK KNICKS?!?! Yeah, sure….Phil Jackson was hired to be the Knickerbockers’ lord and savior but do we really believe that he could do it? What if, in an alternate universe, Tim Howard could save the Knicks?
What if Tim Howard could have saved Knicks fans from James Dolan being Dolan and hiring Isiah Thomas? It would have prevented us from soooo much heartbreak (sigh).
Perhaps Tim Howard could save us from a future without Carmelo Anthony?
Oh, who am I kidding? No one can save the New York Knicks….but a man can dream, right?
Props to Matthew Rossana for the Tim Howard/Knicks photoshops….helping me to help you guys visualize what’s in my head. If you’d like to blame him for that, you can follow him on Twitter at @mrossana.
