Packers fans give lift to stranded Davon House to Green Bay

Two Green Bay Packers fans went above and beyond late on Monday night when cornerback Davon House missed his connecting flight to Green Bay in Minneapolis.

One thing led to another, and House found himself making the four-plus-hour drive from Minneapolis to Green Bay with a pair of complete strangers.

House thanked the guys saying, "Some of the fans took it serious and I'm glad they did". And now that I'm here, I'm not taking any days for granted. "I tried to offer him money". In the end, House made it to practice in time for an important install day and two Packers fans made a lifelong memory.

"It would've been cool just to get a picture with him there, but he was like, 'Follow me to the stadium and I'll sign some stuff for you, '" Johnson told ESPN. "In one piece even!" Before he was wheels down, House sent out the following tweet.

Johnson lives in Eau Claire, Wis.

"It's like I was telling my brother on the way home".

House isn't the first Packers player to take extreme measures to get back to Green Bay for an OTA practice.

The Green Bay Packers are the only National Football League team publicly owned by their fans, so it's only fitting that two average Joes came to the rescue of one of their players. Instead of just dropping off House at his vehicle, House insisted the Johnson brothers come to Lambeau Field, where they got some signed stuff from House, saw the inside of the Packers' locker room and got some pictures with the Packers' Super Bowl trophies.

And now the Johnson brothers got a story they'll never forget. "He signed some shoes and some gloves and let us take pictures with the Super Bowl trophies". They tweeted at House that they would give him a ride to Green Bay. "They walked by (quarterback) Aaron's (Rodgers) locker, and they touched his shoulder pads". "I flew into Minneapolis many years ago - probably six years ago - and they were having a near-tornado experience".
