After missing his connection flight around 11 pm and finding himself stranded at the Minneapolis airport, Green Bay Packers cornerback Davon House took to Twitter to desperately ask anyone and everyone for a ride. He needed to make his OTA practice on Tuesday.

House isn’t the first NFL player to take extreme measures to avoid missing practice. Veteran Buffalo Bills cornerback Shareece Wright allegedly took a $632.08-Uber ($932.08 with his $300 tip) about 550 miles from Chicago’s O’Hare Airport to the team’s practice facility in Orchard Park, New York, around 11 pm on Sunday night, too.

At least for House, he only had to throw some fans $80 for gas. Two brothers from Wisconsin had his back. Mike and Chad Johnson saw the tweet and picked House up at the airport.


Mike, who lives in Hudson, Wisconsin, made the trip to the airport to pick up House, and Chad, who lives in Eau Claire, met them along the way. Together, they made the roughly 280-mile drive from Minneapolis to Green Bay in just over four hours, getting House back by 3:30 am with a few hours to spare before his 7:30 am practice.

“I went to bed and I was scrolling through my Twitter and saw he needed a ride,” Chad said, according to ESPN. “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.”

Lest you think the star hopped out in a hurry, House actually let the brothers follow him into Lambeau Field for a grand tour of the locker room. And, of course, he signed some gloves and cleats as a gracious thank you.
