Couldn’t have been older than 10
But to me and my friends
The voice on the other end might as well have been God’s

from Macklemore and Ryan Lewis (Ft. Macklemore) – My Oh My Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Because Macklemore and his friends were so young, the Mariners were one of the more important things in their lives. They respected Niehaus so much that they held him in higher regard than the other authority figures in their life (teachers, coaches, etc.), almost to a religious fault.
