Monday, December 22, 2014 – The Implosion of the West Side of Kyle Field

I arrived at the Reed Arena viewing area at 6:30 AM Sunday, December 21, 2014. Time flew by as there were over 7000 people there to watch the implosion. Where I stood a group brought music. We sang The Spirit of Aggieland and War Hymn and listened to Noble Men of Kyle and Patton’s Theme.

At promptly 8:00 the first charge was set off to evacuate the bats and birds.  Notice the explosion under the D in “Field”
