…from my perspective, this happened on the internet: (What is this?)
While yesterday’s World Cup loss was a crushing defeat, the goalkeeper for the USA team, Tim Howard, was an instant hero. As a result, in true American fashion, he quickly became a meme.
#ThingsTimHowardCouldSave blew up on Twitter, and lots of jokes appeared on Imgur. Here’s a sample of a few:

The wiki page for U.S. Secretary of Defense even got changed. As a result of the edited wiki page, and most likely an awesome publicity stunt, the actual Defense Secretary, Chuck Hagel, supposedly called Tim Howard and made some jokes.
Day 0 of Anime Expo also kicked off tonight, but rumor has it that they were having trouble with the printers responsible for printing out tickets…
ATTN : If you are in line before midnight tonight you will get your badge. We will stay open as long as possible to get people processed.
