Look, the title's challenging, okay? We get it. It's probably not what you're thinking it's about, because we're talking about athletic balls. Maybe that is what you were thinking about? Are we the problem?

It's a very special episode for week one of MaxFunDrive 2020. The Thundermen are shown what could be. We learn about crimes, both past and future. We find out more about the boys and they find out more about themselves. Much is revealed and makes things even less clear.
It's high crimes, light treason, and social faux pas par excellence at the Power Ball in the caverns beneath Payola, and our inverted-heroes (the opposite of heroes in a way if you think about it) must navigate the slippery social ladder and high society chaos as their prey draws breathlessly near. Masks on, listener, and save a spot on your dance card...for danger!

But eventually, when the drought has lasted so long as to become dry fire, when the routines of the day become so heavy as to ruin the ground as we carry them across the dirt, outrageous ideas take on new character. When we say that a notion is 'so crazy that it might just work' what we are really intimating is that only the outrageous holds opportunity. This experiment of ours is one such opportunity.
