Tim Howard Washington National Airport. #USAvBEL— Jon Ostrower (@jonostrower) July 1, 2014
After all, President Obama did call Howard to congratulate him on his performance, and someone briefly changed the Wikipedia entry for US Secretary of Defense to name him (instead of actual Defense Secretary, Chuck Hagel, who also called). The suggestion was even taken seriously enough to spur an official petition to the Obama Administration.
It simply states:
Whereas Tim Howard has shown himself to be a national treasure, Minister of Defense, Friend of Joe Biden, and the holder for the record of most saves in a World Cup match; Therefore, we politely request that we rename the airport to recognize his accomplishments, and meritorious service to the United States of America.
The petition has a goal of 100,000 signatures, of which it already has 14,500. That's a lot of people who'd like to see "Tim Howard Airport" on their itineraries.
