Tim Howard was briefly the U.S. Secretary of Defense, according to Wikipedia
Speaking of hands, it was those of U.S. goalkeeper Tim Howard that kept the team in the match with a performance those who were watching will not soon forget. Howard recorded a pretty ridiculous 16 saves, many of which were straight out of the top drawer.
Howard’s display was the talk of social media during the game and even prompted a brief change to the Wikipedia page for the United States Secretary of Defense, as shared by Grantland’s Danielle Elliot.

For reasons like this, the internet is great.
Had the U.S. been able to defeat Belgium, a public office may not have been out of the question for Tim Howard.
