ST. LOUIS, MO (KPLR) - All of the rain we had today left me wondering about the notion of creating a holiday for opening day.

What if the game is rained out? Would the holiday be rescheduled? That doesn't make any sense to have a holiday that could end up being rescheduled.

Baseball is such a big deal in St. Louis, Missouri lawmakers are even delaying the start time of their session today just so lawmakers can catch the home opener.

I love baseball as much as the next fan but not everyone in St. Louis is a fan. Life needs to go on, even in a baseball town.

I'm JB and that's the way it oughta be.
