Major League Baseball Wants To Make Opening Day A National Holiday

A petition has been posted on the government website to Declare Major League Baseball Opening Day a national holiday.

The website is whitehouse.gov, and there are already over 20-thousand signatures of people who think it should happen.  They are a long way from the 100-thousand signatures that they need.  The petition is being pushed by St. Louis Cardinals Hall of Famer Ozzie Smith and Budweiser.

Word is that Budweiser is going to start running an ad campaign to get more people to sign the petition and try to get Opening Day a national holiday.  I’m not to sure about this, yes baseball is America’s past-time and we all love the game.  Is it loved enough to make a national holiday?  I’m not sure this is the best thing to have the government working on when there is other items that may be a little more pressing.
