A couple of years ago, the team adopted one of the Grammy Award winner’s songs as their unofficial anthem and, later, honored him with his own bobblehead night. While I’m assuming most Mariners fans already dig Macklemore...

WATCH: Ken Griffey Jr.'s painfully awkward interview on SportsCenter

God bless Linda Cohn.  She tried as best as she could to get a decent interview out of Ken Griffey Jr. but he was clearly in another universe.  Griffey appeared on the afternoon live SportsCenter in a promo spot for Upper Deck and Cohn asked him questions about his favorite cards growing up and thoughts on today's MLB. Griffey's responses were... less than forthcoming.  The...
