Yesterday, in reporting on Giant Brian Wilson's new web site, I wondered what exactly was going on in this video, featuring a graybearded Wilson dressed up like, uh, I guess, Popeye, and which I thought maybe was a reenactment of some nautically minded Dodger fan's half-remembered nightmare.
Today, reader Ken Peterson explains:

That was on Jan 28. How I went a whole month in the dark about this, I don't know, but I am duly chastened.
