As someone who has been in pretty much the exact position as the Packers' Davon House — stranded in a city and needing to get somewhere fast — I can sympathize with the urgency, desperation and commitment House showed Monday night.
House, who was trying to make it back to Green Bay for OTAs starting at 7:30 a.m. Tuesday, hit some bad luck.
His flight was delayed and he was going to have drive from Minneapolis to Green Bay. Then there were no rental cars. Finally, he asked on Twitter if anyone could give him a ride from MSP to Green Bay in the middle of the night.
It was a Hail Mary — but it was even more successful than Aaron Rodgers' desperation heaves. Packers fans Chad and Mike Johnson agreed to give House a ride.
"I went to bed, and I was scrolling through my Twitter and saw he needed a ride," Chad Johnson told ESPN on Tuesday.
