Captain Lou Albano

Captain Lou Albano

one of my childhood favorites has gone to that great squared circle in the sky. captain lou albano died today. he was 76 years old. i knew him as a manager, but i loved him. i wasn’t sure why, but he made me smile.

Albano was recognizable by his penchant for unbuttoned Hawaiian shirts and a trademark beard, which was usually bound by a rubber band.

here’s a clip:

    Sad news indeed. As one of the few other scholars who is also a wrestling fan, this is a sad day. Albano was hilarious . . . I always loved the beard with the hair tie on it.
