I would assume, if there was any substance to this, that MLB could adjust the schedule in future years to place all the games on the same day. Overseas games wouldn't count towards the US national holiday.
It's a cute idea, but the average American worker is unproductive enough as it is, so I don't personally advocate more PTO.
I would imagine the amount of people who are unable to be productive because of the Super Bowl is vastly larger than the number of people who even watch opening day games.
Either way, I agree, it's a dumb idea.
