(From Jamie Grace)
Tim Howard was one of the first people I ever heard of with Tourette Syndrome. My sister was a fan of Manchester United so being the little sis, so was I. He was playing for them at the time but is now the goalie for the US National team. I love soccer and despite my inability to play have always wanted to be a goalie. A huge part of that is because of Tim.
Back when ImAFighter was teensWts, I got a “press pass” to chat with Tim during his warmups on my school’s campus. He was one of the kindest people I have ever met and continues to inspire me. Thank you Tim for who are – we’ll be rooting for you tonight!!!
