WNBA star Brittney Griner infamously protested the national anthem when it was all the rage among liberals. But after spending 10 months in a Russian gulag she is singing a different tune.
Funny how that works. On Friday night Griner played in her first game since the 2021 WNBA Finals. She scored 10 points for the Phoenix Mercury and grabbed three rebounds. And she stood for the national anthem.
“Hearing the national anthem, it definitely hit different,” Griner said. “It’s like when you go for the Olympics, you’re sitting there, about to get gold put on your neck, the flags are going up, and the anthem is playing, it just hits different.
“Being here today, it means a lot.
“I’m grateful to be here, that’s for sure.
“I’m not going to take a day for granted.”
“We looked at each other, and we just had chills,” Mercury coach Vanessa Nygaard said.
“We were here last year for all of it.
“I’m getting emotional about it now.
“Just to see her back out there — it’s an absolute miracle. It was amazing. It’s giving me chills again.”
“Not where I want it to be, but on the right track,” Griner said of her performance. “We’re making the right moves.”
