RIP, Captian Lou

It's been a crazy two weeks at work for the BTPC, but we'd be remiss if we did not take some time out to acknowledge the passing of an '80s Icon. Wrestling legend, fictional music video father of Cyndi Lauper and pioneer of rubber bands as facial accessories, Captian Lou Albano has passed away.

Albano was key to wrestling's mainstream growth in the 1980s, when he teamed with Lauper to help the WWF reach out to the MTV generation. This almost makes up for the fact that he went to the University of Tennessee on a football scholarship. Almost.

RIP, Captain Lou. I'm sure you're collaborating with St. Peter on one hell of a card for the weekend.


Hattip, Jaime.

Warped mind thinking alike again. Just finished mine a few minutes ago. Had the Vol tidbit, just like you.

Like the Zen Master said, 'We'll See'. Can't tell you how many times a week I quote Gust Avrakatos...
