Why Not Actually Make It A "Shea" Bridge?

I was talking to handsome blogger Kerel Cooper from On The Black the other night at Social Media Night about this one.  The Shea Bridge at Citi Field is a nice aesthetic touch and a great place to watch a game, but unfortunately it is completely camouflaged and one of the dullest parts of the park visually.

While I generally oppose the whole "blue walls thing" this is one are of the field I would like to see painted blue. Since it's the Shea Bridge, paint it the same blue as Shea.  To take it one step further, adorn that dull area above it with smaller replicas of the neon figures from the old ballpark.

If you really want to get crazy with them you could have the corresponding figures flash when a play is made.  (i.e. the runner for a SB or the pitcher for a K)  Maybe I'm just trying to bring back my youth when the "E" in the Manufacturers Hanover sign would light up after an error.

What are your thoughts?
