World Cup Memes: Tim Howard to the Rescue

Converged communicators who have followed soccer at all in recent weeks – and those who haven’t – have probably heard something about United States national team goalkeeper Tim Howard. The veteran keeper, a longtime star for the national squad as well as English club Everton, set an all-time World Cup record with 16 saves in the Americans’ 2-1 extra-time loss to Belgium. Howard’s astounding performance wasn’t enough to keep the U.S. alive in the tournament, but it did earn him a special place in history – while also generating some brand-new memes. These themes illustrate Howard heroically leaping to the rescue to save any number of people or things in peril, from the Titanic to swimmers under pursuit from Jaws. As those in DIG3286 (Assembling Digital Media) know, it doesn’t take long for an event like this to traverse the Web.

The Newark Star-Ledger has collected an assortment ( of Tim Howard memes. Take a look.
