Tim Howard National Airport Has a Nice Ring to It, So Do Your Patriotic Duty and Sign This PetitionBy: Josh Wolford - July 2, 2014
It’s the morning after a USA World Cup loss so you’re understandably a bit depressed. It was such a good run and we came so close to somehow pulling out the victory over Belgium. But look at it this way – how exciting is 2018 going to be, right? Not only that, but we have plenty of USMNT soccer to look forward to between now and the next World Cup. So have an extra cup of coffee and cheer up.
One thing we can all be happy about is the play of U.S. goalkeeper Tim Howard, who made up for a relatively porous USA defense with a breathtaking game – recording 16 saves, the most ever recorded in a FIFA World Cup match (dating back to the 60s when they started keeping records).
Now, do your patriotic duty and honor this true American by helping get an airport named after him.
Ok, this isn’t going to work. But it’s funny.
WE PETITION THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION TO:
Change the name of Washington National Airport (DCA) to “Tim Howard National Airport”
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.
That’s what currently appears on the White House’s We The People online petition site. And who would argue that Tim Howard National Airport doesn’t sound a lot better than Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport?
