Legendary pro wrestling manager Captain Lou Albano died on Oct. 14, 2009, 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.
