Man this cuts The Malden both ways as it effects both our legacy of wrestling watching and love of all things Mario related. Captain Lou Albano passed away today at the age of 76. Man I hadn’t seen him for years but in reading it looks like he had a heart attack a few years back and was in decline so i’m glad he’s moved on to the squared circle in the sky. To be honest I don’t even really remember seeing Captain Lou wrestle. I think I mostly saw him doing manager type roles, or playing Cyndi Laupers dad in most of her videos. And of course the likeable, but not all that accurate Mario from the endcap segments from the Super Mario Super Show. which of course leads to….
The Mario. In a life made up of music videos and wrasslin’ you could be immortally know for far worse. See ya round captain.
