The following question came before the American body politic Tuesday: Should Congress designate baseball’s opening day as a federal holiday?
To which fans responded: You mean it’s not?
The first day of the baseball season is already a day of mass miracles, when hundreds of thousands of invalids who call in sick at 8:30 a.m. are healed in time to be at the ballpark by the first pitch at 1:05 p.m. Maybe it should be a religious holiday….
Like many great ideas, the movement to create Opening Day Day seems to have been hatched over a beer. Or rather, a beer company. Budweiser — which is now owned by a corporation in Belgium, where they play soccer, not baseball — launched a petition drive and advertising campaign using Hall of Fame shortstop Ozzie Smith as a pitchman….
1:05 PM???? The first pitch this year will be thrown at 5:05 in the morning by a cartoon kangaroo.
