Opening Day: The Next National Holiday?

Could you use another holiday away from the office? Chances are, the answer is yes. Good news – Budweiser created a petition to make Opening Day a nationally recognized holiday. And it’s already reached the minimum threshold of 100,000 signatures required to receive a response from the White House.

According to Hall of Famer Ozzie Smith, the campaign’s spokesperson, “The more than 100,000 people who signed the petition are just a fraction of the 1.3 million who will attend Opening Day games this year. The day is already an unofficial holiday, but now it’s time to make it official.”

We couldn’t agree more, Ozzie. Tell us, where do we sign?
