According to NBC Bay Area, “One of the people [Sheen] said he wished he could be for ten minutes was Giants pitcher Brian Wilson. Sheen went on to mumble something about Wilson delivering "fury, vengeance, hatred and absolute world domination," then bowed his head in silence for the man, for some reason. Last I checked, Brian Wilson isn't dead or anything.”
Sheen said this the same day Wilson debuted as a 2011 pitcher. The SF Chronicle stated, “As soon as Wilson emerged from the bullpen Sunday, a crowd of 10,980 at Scottsdale Stadium roared. Wilson obliged them with a 10-pitch, 1-2-3 effort that began with strikeouts of Dustin Ackley and Adam Kennedy and ended with Pablo Sandoval leaping to spear a Milton Bradley liner.” The Chron went on to say “Not all pitchers can throw strikes the first time out. Wilson threw seven in 10 pitches. He said he expected to do it and, moreover, wanted the results he got. Wilson noticed the ovation and acknowledged it was different than spring trainings past, when he was greeted with polite clapping, "and that was my mom," he joked.”
Wilson, who visited Sheen a couple of weeks ago, said this of his trip in The Splash: "I'm not Dr. Phil," he said. "I don't care about someone's past. I don't judge a person by what they've done and what they're going to do. I was asked to talk about my life, why I choose to work out hard, why I choose nutrition. Why being sober is easy to do. Why are you thinking these ways? Why does it have such an impact on your life.
"Basically it was talking about how (the actor) can portray this in the movie. As far as talking about guilty by association, c'mon. [...] People are going to make their assumptions. That's fine. You guys know me, know who I am."
