GREEN BAY -- What is a Packers player to do when you miss your connecting flight, it's too late to get another flight to Titletown, and the Minnesota airport you're flying into apparently is out of rental cars?

If you're cornerback Davon House, you ask for help from the fans on Twitter. That's exactly what happened Monday night when a couple of unexpecting Packers fans suddenly found themselves driving the six-year pro across the state to Lambeau Field.

The entire story unfolded in real time on Twitter, and started just after 8:30 Monday night when House lamented the fact he likely wouldn't be making the final leg of his journey back to Green Bay via plane, before soliciting the help of the Internet at large:

Luckily for House, a hero named Mikey and his brother Chad stepped in, picking House up at the airport and making the late-night journey all the way to Green Bay.

While the two Minnesota-based fans no doubt made the trip out of the goodness of their hearts, they got a pretty sweet reward too: A private tour of the Green Bay Packers locker room, plus signed swag:

House played four seasons with the Packers before spending two years with the Jacksonville Jaguars. He was re-signed by Green Bay earlier this year.
