Some say the man's not wrapped too tight: R.I.P. Captain Lou Albano

And another icon of my childhood is gone: Captain Lou Albano dies at the age of 76.

Hey there, NRBQ, tell us a little about he of the rubber bands:

And if you're so inclined, consider a little dance in his honor. Come on everybody, do the Mario!


  1. Definitely a part of the wackiness of the 80s!

    Oh, Super Mario Brothers Super Show... the theme song was stuck in my head for the rest of the day after reading about Lou's passing.

    It's impossible not to sing along...

    I don't want to double comment, but shortly after sending the theme song I found it in GERMAN!

  4. I started seeing him during his manager days. He was never boring. :)
