R.I.P Captain Lou Albano

By Wyatt Earp | October 15, 2009

Captain Lou Albano

As Randal Graves said, “I wonder if Jimmy ‘Superfly’ Snuka is in mourning?”

Pro wrestling legend Captain Lou Albano passed away on Wednesday morning at the age of 76.

Lou was admitted for hospice care earlier in the week following a hospital stay. The wrestler had struggled with his poor health in recent years, suffering a heart attack in 2005.

Albano, a former wrestler for the WWF, was most popularly known to the non-wrestling world as Cyndi Lauper’s father in the video for Girls Just Want to Have Fun. (LINK)

Damned shame. I loved Captain Lou when I was growing up. Rest in peace, good sir.

    Nobody could conceal a foreign object quite like Captain Lou.

    He will be missed.

    AJ – Nice! Brings me back.

    Sully – And he had an endless supply of rubber bands.

    Randal – Did you remember their names or did you Google them?
