The 144th Belmont Stakes, 2012 Stanley Cup, Shriek

TV tips for Saturday June 9, 2012

The 144th Belmont Stakes, 4:30 p.m., NBC
So ... that was depressing news on Friday that I'll Have Another was injured and not only scratched from the race but retired. On the other hand, no one needs to live through another Eight Belles situation, so I am glad that those in charge of that magnificent stallion's life made the right decision. NBC execs must be weeping into their (insert Belmont race track signature drink name here) over the ginormous loss in ratings they will see.

2012 Stanley Cup Final, 8 p.m., NBC
Game 5, Devils-Kings. My husband and son have actually been watching the Cup this year, which is why we are getting a new TV. They cannot see the puck.

Shriek, 9 p.m., tbs
"Summoned after 50 years in hiding, a murderous demon stalks victims, the sixth of whom will become its master." This means you want to be the sixth victim, right?

So glad someone besides me remembers Eight Belles. I've loved horses my whole life and I was traumatized, especially when the vet was interviewed on live TV and seemed ridiculously nonchalant about the whole thing. I'm sure I'll Have Another will father very attractive little horses to carry on his name.
