Sounds like the tradition of the release of balloons for the first Husker touchdown may go down as evidently there is a lack of helium . My idea then would be to give each fan an empty balloon entering the stadium and then every individual would blow up their balloon the old fashioned way . Then when the Huskers score their first touchdown , everyone bounce the tens of thousands of balloons in the air like the floating balls at rock concerts. Everytime a balloon comes down , it is knocked back up in the air by the tens of thousands of fans. This could go on for a minute or two and then of course I am sure the rest of the balloons would be popped. Quite a bit of trash balloons to pick up for sure , and I am sure someone will get their panties in a bunch about people slipping on the popped balloons afterward , but fun never the less ... any other ideas on how to continue this tradition ?
