DENVER - (FILE PHOTO) Denver Nuggets owner Stanley Kroenke is seen at the game against the Minnesota Timberwolves at the Pepsi Center on November 4, 2004 in Denver, Colorado. One of Arsenal FC's biggest shareholders, Lady Nina Bracewell-Smith, is selling, April 12, 2010 her stake of approximately 16% in the Premier League club. The sale raises the potential of either Alisher Usmanov, who fronts Red & White, or sports tycoon Stan Kroenke, of Kroenke Sports Enterprises, gaining control of the North London club.

Happy birthday to Colorado overlord Stan Kroenke. Kroenke owns the Avalanche, Nuggets and the Altitude sports network, to name a few key items in the portfolio. But it's his current attempt to purchase a majority stake in the St Louis Rams - a move that would seem to conflict with the NFL's cross-ownership policy - that has Avalanche fans biting their collective nails.
So, have a happy birthday Stan. Now please don't screw this up.
