The Supervolcano in Yellowstone that is beneath the surface, could blow up at any time. This thing will make a very large mess and we could be done. Nature does not run on a clock and people need to remember that. A Scramble Friday is welcomed!
Joe stays on brand mentioning the Twins win vs the Royals last night. Then on to the Wild and their big loss to the Blues. It's positive Thursday, so Joe is forced to keep a positive spin on every story he gives the listener. Volcano news!
Positive Thursday continues as Joe needs to place an upswing look at the news of the day. The staff is testing the Mayor and Rookie gets into trouble for not paying attention.

Some new developments on the TWA Flight 800 from 1996 from a pilot's point of view. Planes blowing up mid-air. Probably not. Joe presents thirteen more uses for WD-40.
The entire staff is back in the studio. Joe mentions taking the light rail to the ballgame yesterday. That is exactly how it is supposed to work. Why are people dishonest at Target Field taking two sweatshirts? People need to pay for the train.
