Law-enforcement officials and the FDNY have been told to prepare for a barge-launched pyrotechnic display off of Manhattan’s Javits Center, where Clinton and running mate Tim Kaine will join their supporters for the Nov. 8 vote count, sources said.

The aerial detonations would last for two minutes, with the triumphal celebration permitted to start as early as 9:30 p.m. — a mere half-hour after the polls close in New York, sources said.

It reminds me of a famous story about the greatest team player in U.S. sports, one William Felton ("Bill") Russell. 

The Celtics were supposed to be done. On their last legs, up against the Lakers' trio of Jerry West, Wilt Chamberlain, and Elgin Baylor, who had home court advantage for the first time. There was supposed to be a party! No, really. There was a program in every seat of the Forum before Game 7. "When, not if, the Lakers win the title, balloons will be released from the rafters, the USC marching band will play 'Happy Days Are Here Again' and broadcaster Chick Hearn will interview Elgin Baylor, Jerry West and Wilt Chamberlain in that order."

Bill Russell told Jerry West what was on the Celtics program. "Those fucking balloons are staying up there."
