While the party was continuing Tuesday night for many of the Blue Bombers there were some that stepped away from the celebrations to minister to others in downtown Winnipeg.
Drake Nevis and his wife Reese, along with teammate Nathan Brisson-Fast, stopped by Love Lives Here on Tuesday evening.
"What a surprise and what joy they brought with them."
Love Lives Here has a trailer on the corner of Henry and Martha where they minister to the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of the sexually exploited and street-involved people who are poor, addicted, homeless and/or socially marginalized in Winnipeg.
Drake and Reese have been constant fixtures at the ministry for the past few years while they are in Winnipeg during the CFL season.
Heather Barefoot from LLH says she can't believe their kindness for putting celebrations on hold to come and visit with the people instead.

"(They) took time out of their crazy schedule and came to the LLH trailer tonight to say their final goodbye before heading back home to Louisiana," Barefoot says about the Nevises.
Brisson-Fast will be heading back to his home state of Michigan.

"Not only did they take the time to visit but they also brought amazing trays of food with them from the Blue Bombers' celebration party," she says.
"What a surprise and what joy they brought with them. They will certainly be missed! It doesn’t get any sweeter than this!"
Nevis had an outstanding Grey Cup game recording one sack and one tackle and created strong pressure up the middle for the Bombers' defence.
He also received the Athletes in Action Gord Barwell Award at this year's AIA Grey Cup breakfast.
