Most yearbook quotes are silly. You’re supposed to come up with some life-defining statement not even having a grasp on life itself. So most yearbook quotes are just funny (almost stupid) quotes.
But Tim Howard’s yearbook quote is almost as if he knew he would be a star athlete on a worldwide stage one day.

That quote really reins true. He blocked 16 shots Tuesday against Belgium. Certainly didn’t go down without a fight.
