Americans can't seem to get enough of Tim Howard.

Howard's valiant effort in the US' loss to Belgium has made him a hero throughout the country, but if you see him, just make sure that you remember there are limits to showing your appreciation.

After Howard flew back to Los Angeles from the World Cup in Brazil, he was besieged by fans and did the whole autograph and picture thing. He reached his limit, though, when one fan tried to go in for a hug.

Remember, folks: goalkeepers need their space, in net and in life.
