Mid-Week Cheat Sheet: See All Of Tim Howard's 16 Saves, Mike Mikolas Eat A Lizard & More

The run is over. The US men's soccer team lost to Belgium in extra time on Tuesday, ending their exciting World Cup run. You knew that already, though.

Here are all 16 of Tim Howard's save in one video.

What to say at work: 
Howard's 16 saves were the most in the World Cup since FIFA started keeping track of that in 2002.

Of course, there are now memes popping up everywhere featuring "things Tim Howard could save". Brilliant.

Here's my question: will you go back to not caring about soccer or has the obsession with the USMNT's World Cup run gotten you interested in the sport?

Mavs Prepping for Melo
The Mavericks are preparing for a visit with free agent forward Carmelo Anthony who paid the Bulls a visit on Tuesday. In the meantime, Dirk Nowitzki is a free agent and while the team has made progress on a new deal for him, finalizing his new deal is on hold until the team meets with Anthony.

Do You Really Want to Know? 
The Rangers lost to the Orioles 8-3 on Tuesday as former Rangers hit his 26th home run of the season for Baltimore on what was his 34th birthday. Ouch.

After designating Joe Saunders for assignment, the Rangers have recalled RHP Mike Mikolas from Round Rock who once ate a live lizard. So there's that. He'll start for Texas against the Orioles on Wednesday night.

Cowboys Carousel 
The Cowboys put linebacker Sean Lee on injured reserve, officially ending his season. The team acquired linebacker Rolando McClain in a trade with Baltimore to add depth at the linebacker position.

Serena Retires
Serena Williams had to quit retire her second-round doubles match at Wimbledon three games into the first set. She appeared disoriented and Tournament officials later said she had a viral illness.
