Who the heck is Tim Howard and does he make tasty donuts and coffee like Tim Horton?

The fact that ANYTHING is named after Ronaldus Magnus really bothers them, doesn’t it?

Why? He failed to stop to goals and they lost?

Before you ask, I read the article.

If anything should be renamed, it is the Richard B. Russell building. I still don't know how Democrats can get away with naming their Senate office building after the man who led the filibuster against the 1964 Civil Rights Act.

I had to look him up. I have never seen him or read about him before. But, then I’d have to be dying of boredom to look at soccer. (Actually, if I were that bored I can think of dozens of things I’d do before resorting to soccer.)

I don’t ask such things. :-)

I don’t follow World Cup soccer but all I know is the USA lost and yet advanced based on that defeat in the last round. They won one of three games in that first round. Then they lost again.

Pass out the ribbons.

Instead....rename BWI/Feelgood Marshall Airport after Tim Howard. Howard is more black (mixed race) than Marshall (mixed race)...and didn’t watch soap operas during work time.

Howard did more to defend America...

If his Backs were worth anything, he would not have even have had to make the attempt. 16 saves is amazing and far more than he should have had to have faced.

That people in that poll regard R Reagan as the best president since World War II is really eating at them.

Their slug is considered the worst and they don’t know what to do.

I will take your word for it. I have not had time to see any of it. Not really a soccer fan, but my nephew played. I do recall it had to be about 16 years or so ago. I saw a game between Poland and someone and I like the way Poland “tackled”.

Only progressives would seek to change a name from the most popular, effective and unapologetically patriotic American leader to an obscure soccer goalie.

Who is Tim Howard? Never heard of him. I am serious, who is he?

Maybe they could change Kennedy Airport instead. Perhaps we should start a petition.

I think this is a veiled reference to the Redskins’ situation. It wouldn’t surprise me, as I mentioned in the past, that we start seeing people demanding names to schools, airports, towns, etc. to be changed based on America’s history.

Of course.

On the other hand, it is a long-standing FR tradition to blame the poster.

It is an even longer-standing FR tradition to reply without reading the article. I'm working on that one. ;-)

From what I gather, he was the goalie on the USA’s soccer team that won one of four games in this ongoing tourney that is held every four years. Someone can correct me if those numbers are off.

If anything should be renamed, it is the Richard B. Russell building.....I have written numerous times to eradicate the name “Rachael Carson Building” in Harrisburg. PA. Never get an answer back. She’s murdered more people than all the communists in all the world.

I have no doubt that Tim Howard is a fine fellow. But, the most popular man in America? Huh? He's a SOCCER PLAYER fer cryin' out loud.

Regardless of the World Cup, soccer is in fifth place for popular team sports in the U.S. behind football, baseball, basketball and hockey. And there it should stay since it's boring. Rugby is far more interesting.

It was the innocent days of 1970. My earliest memories. Getting a nickel or dime (whatever the cost) and running to the store to buy a pack of baseball cards. It almost didn’t matter if I got Johnny Bench, Frank Howard or the backup catcher on Montreal. I was happy sitting someplace just outside the store and going through those cards, looking at the images, reading the stats and bio info and learning — I even taught myself basic math by learning batting averages. Those are unblemished memories.

The only Tim Howard I have ever heard of is Sheriff of Erie County (surrounding Buffalo NY)

I remember it, because he was vocal in saying he would not enforce Andrew Cuomo’s ridiculous SAFE ACT, rushed through the NY Legislature after the Newton CT shootings

Commies are big on name changes - streets, parks, bridges & buildings. They need to wipe out history and replace it with their own.

Mao did it, Stalin did it.

And after the fanatics were killed off all those names got changed back. And I will live long enough to see it happen here.

You remember the gum? It was so hard it shattered when you chewed it and it left a stripe on the card that was closest to the gum.

Football cards were great too. I had so many Forest Gregg cards that I thought the machine broke at the factory. I hated getting the summary cards - the ones that had stats on the teams or players.

Coca cola, or Orange Fanta in a glass bottle in one of those machines that kept those bottles so cold that on a 100 degree day in Northern California, there would be frost on the bottle.

The author apparently knows who Tim Howard is, so Mr Howard gets an enthusiastic one-person vote for most popular person in the US right now.

The rest of us unwashed folks are just going to have to catch up with who’s who. I guess.
