Dustin Penner has become the latest professional athlete to bum a ride from fans. On Friday night, Penner found himself stranded at the grocery store without a car. Being a resourceful fellow, and not wanting to call a cab, he reached out to the public via Twitter.

Not long after, Emilio Delgado – that brave knight in shining armor – arrived.
If you’re wondering how Penner found himself in this predicament to begin with, allow Delgado to explain.
And there you have it. Giannis Antetokounmpo would be proud.
In case you were wondering, Penner held true to his word and gave his ride tickets to Saturday’s game.
