Cyndi Lauper's Father: Captain Lou Albano dies 76

* Cyndy Lauper's father from the video "Girls just wanna have fun"

Louis Vincent Albano (July 29, 1933 - October 14, 2009), better known by his ring name Captain Lou Albano, was an American professional wrestler, manager and actor. With an over-the-top personality and a penchant for boisterous declarations, Albano was the epitome of the antagonistic manager that raised the ire of wrestlers and incited the anger of spectators. Throughout his forty-two-year career, Albano guided 15 different tag teams and 4 singles competitors to championship gold. A unique showman, with an elongated beard, rubber band facial piercings, and loud outfits, he was the forefather of the 1980s Rock 'n' Wrestling Connection. Collaborating with Cyndi Lauper, Albano helped usher in wrestling's crossover success with a mainstream audience. Capitalizing on his success, he later ventured into Hollywood with various television, film, and music projects.

People like wrestling. People like hunting. People like ping pong. People like quilting. people like water polo. people like antique guns. ... Just because you don't like it, that doesn't mean they are losing fans.
