The car salesman who got fired for wearing a Packers necktie has a new customer and fan from Wisconsin.

John Riley of Brookfield took a train to Chicago and then got a ride to south suburban Homewood to buy a truck from John Stone.

Stone was fired from his job at Weeb Chevrolet in Oak Lawn when he wore the tie a day after the bears lost to the pack.

He now works for Chevrolet of Homewood.

Riley says he heard Stone's story on the radio and decided to support a fellow Packers fan.
