The Gift of Diplomacy

There might be no greater irony than a Kenny sharing a birthday with United Nations Day.  Yet, indeed one of us does.  

Today, however he spends it (although I suspect he shall spend it at work, since today is a day of the week that ends in "Y"), I hope that my brother, Kelly, enjoys his birthday.  Perhaps, this year, following in the new tradition of long-suffering franchises attaining heretofore unprecedented success (or at the very least, revisiting success last attained multiple generations ago) our beloved New York Rangers will etch their names on Lord Stanley's Cup for only the second time in Kelly's lifetime - and the first time in more than twenty years. 

The Rangers' season is only six games old.  If they are to hoist the Stanley Cup they shall not do so until June, which is of course several months from now.  Methinks, however, if such is the present the Rangers give him, then Kelly will gladly accept it.
