The Montreal Impact was back on the practice pitch today getting set to host Philadelphia on Saturday at Saputo stadium.
Defender Jeb Brovsky was there this morning for a special mask to help him avoid reinjuring his nose, which was shattered in 6 places in last Wednesdays 0-0 draw against Vancouver.
Brovsky e says he feels great. (Or least as great as you can feel when your nose gets smashed in 6 places.)
“All thanks to the Impact doctors and the doctors down at the General Hospital. It’s a night I for sure want to forget but I thank the doctors, they did a great job. Like I said, if they didn’t do a good job, I might be divorced at this point.”
Meanwhile there's still no timeline for the return of captain Davy Arnaud who suffered concussion-like symptoms in the home game against TFC in the Canadian Championship ...
The Impact's 0-0 draw vs the Whitecaps wasn't all blood and guts in the Canadian Championship.

It was May 12, 2012. Montreal felt The Beckham Effect.
A record Montreal soccer crowd of over 60, 000 packed the Olympic Stadium to get a glimpse soccer royalty---His Beckhamness.
The Impact welcomed David Beckham and the LA Galaxy during their inagural season of 2012; the first time and last time "Becks" would lace up for kicks in Montreal.
He won a standing ovation even though his goal resulted in the Impact letting a lead slip away and settling for a 1-1 draw.
Beckham ripped the shirt off his back and threw it into the crowd, setting off squels of delight from fans at the Big Owe who set a record for biggest soccer crowd ever in Montreal.
The richest player in North American soccer history will retire at season's end. He's only days removed from having clinched a French crown for his current club Paris St-Germain.

The Montreal Impact settled for a scoreless draw in last night's matchup against the whitecaps at Saputo Stadium in the first leg of the Canadian Championship final.
Midfielder Patrice Bernier says that usually the home team has a slight advantage, but when two teams meet again in Vancouver on May 29th, it’s anybody’s game.
“They’re going to be at home so they’re going to have the crowd behind them, but the score is 0-0 so nobody is leading. It’s really going to be a one game final. It’s the last game so it’s going to be a one-off. There has to be a winner. The only factor for us is that we know that away goals will count now that everybody is at 0-0.”
Impact defender Jeb Brovsky will be out of training for at least a week after undergoing plastic surgery to repair six fractures to his nose ...
The Montreal Impact vowed they wouldn't fall behind in the Canadian Championship Final first leg as they did in the semifinals versus TFC.
Problem is they couldn't get a leg up. Instead they got a bloody and probably broken nose.
A crowd of more than 12,000 booed the referee off the pitch following failed attempts to get Jeb Brovsky back into the action after suffering a bloody nose and head injury.
Brovsky went courageously airborne for a header toward the goal but was knocked head-to-head by a Vancouver Whitecap, with Brovsky staying down upon landing for only a moment.
Very late in the 2nd half, the free-wheeling defender had curled a shot to the far corner of the Whitecaps net only to have it land on top of the goal, just failing to curve down into the top corner.
