Our View: We’re hoping that California Chrome shines today in Belmont Stakes

Not that we don’t have a lot of choices for fun this weekend, but you want to get out of the heat and close to a television set around 3:30 p.m. Saturday. That’s when California Chrome runs to win the final leg of the Triple Crown. How this horse burst on the national scene is one of the most amazing sports stories of the decade, maybe even the last four decades. That’s because it’s been 36 years since Affirmed became the last Triple Crown winner by winning the Belmont Stakes.
