Not since the Great Zidane Rumor of February 2007 have we seen an explosion of copy about a player's potential/impending arrival to Major League Soccer. But it's easy to find reports today asking whether Liverpool's Robbie Fowler will "join" fellow Englander David Beckham here in the U.S. of A.

Even with Fowler's agent denying talks are taking place, comments from New England Revolution head coach Steve Nicol seems to be doing enough to keep this one alive. Whatever is happening behind closed doors, fans are ready, eager even, for this trade to happen.

Here's to hoping March will be the Month of Fowler; the vigil starts now. I'll be keeping an ear to the ground till this one either walks living into the light or is confirmed dead.
