MINNEAPOLIS - The drive from Minneapolis to Green Bay is not exactly the most thrilling road trip but for two Packers fans, a recent trip on the four-hour-plus jaunt is likely one they'll never forget.
After getting stranded at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport, Packers cornerback Davon House was left with few options to get him back to Green Bay in time for OTAs.
He tweeted that he landed at 11 p.m. -- too late for a flight to Green Bay's Austin Straubel Airport -- and found out that MSP was out of rental cars.
So he did what many do in times of desperation -- turn to social media. In a single tweet, House asked his nearly 35,000 followers for a lift to Lambeau.
Any packer fans in Minnesota want to take a trip to Green Bay 😎 maybe I can hitch hike a ride 👍— Davon House (@DavonHouse) June 6, 2017
Two brothers -- and self proclaimed Packers fans -- saw the tweet and quickly replied, offering House a ride back to Packer country.
House tweeted about his rescuers, who promised they'd get him back in time for OTAs. According to Pro Football Talk, the brothers live in Hudson and Eau Claire -- and even packed a pillow to ensure House would be well-rested for practice the following day.
One of the brothers later tweeted that not only did they arrive to Green Bay safely but were given a fan's dream experience -- plus gas money.
Sure did. Davon was far too gracious. Took us in the locker room, took photos w/ us, signed cleats and gloves. True class act. All @ 3:30am!— Chad Johnson (@chadj19) June 6, 2017
