During the endless Spring Training days, we (me?) here at Getting Blanked wrote about Ben Gibbard, of the popular yacht rock band Death Cab for Cutie, and his great love for baseball. Gibbard is a hardcore Mariners fan and isn’t afraid to tweet about.

theScore’s own Paul Brothers got the chance to interview Gibbard about his Mariners love and it turned out pretty well. They even threw in a mention of his wife, Zooey Deschanel, for good measure. Note the pining for Brandon Morrow – hands off, hippy!
