4:33 pm
griner and david bailey. they were saying these are real heroes who stepped in harm's way and thinking about the fact if they had not been here, this could have been a different situation. >> absolutely. what did they tell you about what they think is going to happen going forward? did they tell you they expect a change or a lasting change in this town because of all of this? >> they're concerned because if you think before this baseball game being a hinge in the change of the dialogue, that puts a lot of stress on one game. people say this university will unity will be created in that situation. so will folks take this as a sense of unity or move on to something else. >> your listeners also keeping an eye on home boy, kevin durant and the warriors. they had their parade today. the question in the air is whether or not the warriors will come here. as i understand it,

4:35 pm
together and have a conversation about it in their own time. right now they wanted to enjoy the championship. >> one last thing, there was a similar conversation when the new england patriots won the super bowl earlier this year. now, you have something on that. >> i do. i had a chance to speak with david steele today a sports writer. he tells me in the age of outspoken athletes, we are not seeing anything new today. >> i think people who have some sort of objections to this might need to think about the number of individual athletes over the previous eight years during barack obama's administration who made their choice to stay away. made their choices publicly and clearly known. but athletes are and have been showing themselves as people who are not afraid to ability like american citizens who are exercising the rights that they're entitled to like everybody else. >> imagine that. athletes can do what we can do,
