San Francisco Giants pitcher Tim Lincecum is a one-man sports show. After tossing his 2nd career no-hitter versus the San Diego Padres, he slipped into a USA soccer jersey in a show of support for the USMNT before their pivotal World Cup match.

To top off a celebration that already included two Powerade baths, Lincecum donned a gladiator’s helmet and went all WWE with Daniel Bryan’s rousing “YES! YES! YES!” chant. The powers that be at U.S. Soccer took note, and now they want that helmet… ASAP.

If the soccer team can replicate Lincecum’s shutout in their battle with Germany, they’re assured of a spot in the World Cup knockout round. USA! USA! USA!
