Tim Howard battled his heart out against Belgium, earning nothing but respect from the world at large. He saved more goals than any keeper in World Cup history, enshrining him as a United States sports legend. Even Belgium’s center defenseman paid his respects in the most classy way possible on Twitter:

A warrior like Tim Howard didn’t deserve to lose that game, but the sports gods are fickle. We’re all pretty down in the dumps right now, but it almost brought a tear to my eye seeing Howard’s post-game interview with ESPN where he can barely get his words out between tears. It’s truly what being a competitor is all about. Much respect to you, Tim.
