105.3 THE FAN — Ozzie Smith is the spokesperson for a plan to get MLB Opening Day accepted as a National Holiday.

I think nearly every person in DFW treats Opening Day that way anyway. Some people go out to the ballpark simply to tailgate and hang out.

Kevin and I have traditionally asked for the Super Bowl to be on a Saturday, so that everybody can have an opportunity to recover, but Opening Day for baseball as a National Holiday, genius idea from The Wizard.

The other reason Ozzie might be the smartest man alive, he was asked who the best shortstops are that he’s seen.

His list of best shortstops:

— Omar Visquel
— Elvis Andrus
— Andrelton Simmons

The Rangers signed Elvis to a 10-year contract because of his addictive personality and love for the game as well as his talent, something Ozzie Smith was well known for as well.
