A Packers cornerback used Twitter to hitch a ride from Minnesota to Green Bay to make voluntary practice after missing a flight

No one is immune to travel snafus, not even NFL athletes on their way to voluntary workouts.

Late Monday night, Packers cornerback Davon House landed at the Minneapolis airport, having missed his connecting flight to Green Bay. Like any weary traveller learning their plans were falling apart, House was frustrated, and like many of us, he shared his pain on social media. 

To make matters worse, House would soon learn that Minnesota was out of rental cars, making his mission even more difficult.

His travel plans were in the air, but his undesirable situation did leave him in a great position to make a solid joke at the expense of the Minnesota Vikings.

It was around this time that House got the idea to possibly parlay his social media following and the dedicated nature of the Packers fanbase into a ride toward Lambeau.

There to answer the call were brothers Chad and Mike Johnson, clearly committed Packers fans who found themselves in the right place at the right time to get their cornerback to practice.

A few hours later, House would confirm that the Johnsons were providing him a ride, seemingly in high spirits.

House later told ESPN that the trio talked for about an hour and a half before he caught some sleep (the Johnsons had been kind enough to bring a pillow just in case).

Upon arriving in Green Bay at around 3:30 a.m., the Johnson brothers dropped House off at his car which was parked at the Green Bay airport. While the brothers were getting ready to head home, House invited the pair to follow his car to Lambeau, and went on to give the brothers a tour, take pictures with them and the Packers Super Bowl tropihes, and sign some gear for them.

House offered to buy the brothers a hotel room for the night, but the Johnsons refused, saying they’d head back toward Minnesota so they could get to work the next day.

It’s a story with a happy ending. House made it to practice on time, albeit with less sleep than he probably would have preferred, and the Johnson brothers got to help out the team they love and left with a story they will be able to tell envious Packer fans for the rest of their lives. Additionally, in an interview with ESPN the following day, House assured the brothers that they would not be forgotten, and he’d do his best to hook them up with tickets the next time the Packers were taking on the Vikings.

In the end, fellow Packer Ha Ha Clinton-Dix simply and succinctly wrapped up the entire adventure.
