Green Bay Packers defensive back Davon House found himself in a bit of a pickle on Monday night after he missed his connecting flight trying to get back to Green Bay for the team’s organized team activities (OTAs) that are set for this week. Stranded at the airport, House decided the best course of action was to turn to social media and see if there were any good Samaritans willing to help him out.
Lucky for him, a pair of brothers who are big Packers fans, happened to live in the area and were willing to let House hitch a ride up to camp.
House took the brothers up on the offer and hitched a ride with them.
The brothers described the experience to ESPN.com’s Rob Demovsky.
“I went to bed, and I was scrolling through my Twitter and saw he needed a ride,” Chad Johnson told ESPN on Tuesday. “My brother lives in Hudson; I’m in Eau Claire. I tweeted him that, ‘I could come pick you up,’ and in the meantime I texted my brother that House needs a ride. My brother also tweeted him. He was closer, so he swung up to the airport and picked him up, and I met him on Highway 29 so my brother and I could keep each other awake.”
The brothers even apparently brought along a pillow so that House could catch some sleep on the drive. As thanks for helping him out of a tight spot, House gave the guys some signed gear and allowed them to take a picture with the Packers Super Bowl trophies.
