R.I.P. Captain Lou Albano

Wrestling legend Captain Lou Albano passed away today at the age of 76. (Non-Wrestlemaniacs might remember him as Cyndi Lauper's dad in her video for "Girls Just Want to Have Fun" -- she also wrote the foreword to his autobiography, released last year.)

I might just have to stick a mournful rubber band or two on my face for the rest of the day...

UPDATE: Since the original video of NRBQ rocking out with their former manager Capt. Lou was taken off YouTube, here's another good sampler: an interview with Greg "The Hammer" Valentine by Mean Gene Okerlund. Nobody could rock a beer gut quite like Captain Lou.
