Strong winds leave even Dodgers feeling blue

The winds have swept down hard on the Dodgers, and I’m not talking about the crosstown rival Angels landing Albert Pujols and C.J. Wilson.

The winds that have ravaged Southern California recently left their mark on the Dodgers too.

The "Think Blue" sign in the hills beyond the center field parking lot that faces Dodger Stadium was hit hard by the strong winds, knocking down its first two letters and half the "U" in blue.

Now the sign looks as if it says "Ink Bue," which I don’t think is any indication that they’re about to sign some mystery player or have a new partnership with the British University of Egypt. Times staffer Blake Hennon captured a picture of the new-look sign during a recent visit to the stadium.

The "Think Blue" sign was designed along the lines of the Hollywood sign on Mt. Lee and was originally used during the O’Malley era in a "Think Blue Week" promotion. Later, it was decided to leave the sign up year-round.

A Dodgers spokesman said the team does plan to repair the sign.
