No Balloon Drop.

The Democratic Party's National Convention has come and gone, and the most impressive acceptance speech in my life has been delivered in the cool air of Mile High Stadium. Real fireworks are rare in political conventions because of fire danger in enclosed arenas. I noticed the cleanup shots of the Pepsi center in Denver showed massive net balloon tubes (can anything involving balloons be called "massive"?) that hold the latex orbs in anticipation of the ultimate celebration, but weren't used.

My question is: What do they do with those huge net tubes of balloons? I mean they spent $250,000 on those balloons, so now what?
