With the match on a Friday night, the timing of my normal injury report post is, of course, thrown off. But never fear, we still have you covered:
Injury Report Presented by Houston Methodist (As of Wednesday, Oct. 2)
OUT: Brian Ownby - Right knee sprain;
QUESTIONABLE: Eric Brunner - Right ankle sprain; Calen Carr - Left knee; Andrew Driver - Right calf strain
OUT: Nelson Rivas - Left knee injury; Adrian Lopez - Right knee injury; Maximiliano Rodriguez - Foot fracture; Hernan Bernardello - Left ankle sprain
Brunner, Carr, and Driver have all be involved in practices this week, so while still up there, they're clearly improving, which is a good sign.
It's also been established that Alessandro Nesta has remained in Montreal, though as of this moment, I'm not really sure exactly why he didn't travel with the Impact.
This evening's match is also the Bobby Boots Cancer match, promoting breast cancer awareness. As of Thursday night, there were still tickets available under the $25 deal, which would get you one ticket (200 endline), a pink Dynamo t-shirt and a donation to the Houston Methodist Cancer Center - the same people who treated me during my fight last year, by the way.
The small chance of thunderstorms I'd noted in the preview seems to have gone away, so it'll just be mildly warm (upper 80s) and humid, with a small chance of rain. Please plan accordingly, and remember - umbrellas aren't allowed in BBVA Compass Stadium.
And as always, if you do go, be prepared to be loud and proud. There's a reason the Dynamo play so well here, and the support is definitely a part of it.
