    Legendary pro wrestling manager Captain Lou Albano died this morning, MTV.com is reporting.

    Albano, who was sent home from the hospital earlier this week and place under hospice care, was 76 years old.

    Albano is best known to non-wrestling fans as the father in Cyndi Lauper's "Girls Just Want to Have Fun" video. That helped kick off the Rock 'n Wrestling connection that launched the then-WWF to national prominence in the 1980s.

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    RIP Lou. I went to many wrestling matches at the Garden. Lou was a character.

    I saw this on another site. He wrestled before my time, but still sad to see him go.
    Kind of surprising he made it all the way to 76. Way too many professional wrestlers have died in their 50s or earlier.
    We're bringing purple back.
