Like implosions? Well good. You're in the right place.

Texas A&M put on a rad show for our fellow construction-destruction lovers over the weekend when they demolished part of Kyle Field as part of a $450 million renovation project for the stadium.

The controlled demolition would have been much cooler had they hired Godzilla to do it, but even without that giant roughneck lizard monster, the whole thing is still pretty darn awesome.

So sit back and prepare yourself to witness one of the best controlled collapses of a stadium in recent memory, courtesy of those Aggies up in College Station.

We're sure all you Texas Longhorns fans are salivating at the thought.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
