Because of his great defense at the World Cup, U.S. Soccer Goalkeeper Tim Howard became an instant sensation.  People were so impressed that various memes were even created about him.

Well, Howard was unlucky enough to have a camera in his face as he came home from Brazil. As you'd expect a big crowd surrounded Howard and people wanted to get his picture or autograph. TMZ captured the moment that was pretty good until one guy tried to get a hug, and doing what he does best, Howard blocked his attempt.
