RIP Captain Lou Albano

Even if you had no knowledge of wrestling whatsoever, you knew who Lou Albano was. He was Cyndi Lauper's father in her most famous video "Girls Just Want to Have Fun." Characterized by his loud Hawaiian shirts and his beard trademarked by rubberbands, the WWE remembered him as both "one of the company's most popular and charismatic legends" and "one of the most hated men." His career included a myriad of work including appearances on "Miami Vice" and voicing the cartoon Mario besides his long wrestling involvement. He passed away today in New York at 76.
