Sadly for all U.S. soccer fans, Belgium eliminated our men's national team from the World Cup yesterday. But, there is one silver lining. Goalkeeper Tim Howard put on a historic performance, picking up 16 saves. That's the most saves in a World Cup game over the last 50 years!

To honor Howard, one Wikipedia user decided he deserved a better title and edited the page for Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel. Like most Wikipedia pranks, it didn't stay up long. But, it was a fun effort nonetheless.

Even Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales found the story amusing, though he is not a big fan of incorrect info making its way onto pages.

Other fans got in on the game, too. One Photoshopped Howard's face onto a quarter. Someone even started a White House petition to change the name of the Washington Reagan National Airport to the Tim Howard Airport.
