I remember that big old helm but wasn't aware that a tradition had grown up
around it.  If I recall correctly, It wasn't really intended to be an
especially huge helm; it was just a horrible sizing miscalculation.  These
things happen, or at least they did in BD back then.  A lot of old BD
traditions have fallen by the wayside, and I can't say that's an
unadulterated Bad Thing.
