RIP Captain Lou Albano
« on: October 15, 2009, 01:14:22 AM »
For those of you who have not heard of this man, he was a wrestling manager for about 35 years combined, and played Mario in the live action portion of "The Super Mario Bros. Super Show". However, his most impressive achievement was leading 15 teams to the WWF Tag Team Championships. Well, now that you know who the man was, I regret to inform you that he died today at the age of 76 of "natural causes" at his home. Even if you don't like wrestling, please don't come into this topic to express how much of a faker he was.

He got a send off on my radio show last night. The "You've brought joy and fantasy into the world, and will be missed" send off, where I play Puff the Magic Dragon followed by The Rainbow Connection.

Because that man did help bring wonder and fantasy into the world, and helped spread joy and happiness.

God speed, Super Mario.

I hadn't realized he was that old...76 means in his heyday with Cindy Lauper he was already past 50.

And in his mid-50's when he was Mario.

I expect Vince will ring the bell for him.  Might even let Joe come out and say a few words.
