We'll miss ya, Captain.

The fourth panel is also how I look at the end of the last episode of Cowboy Bebop.

Man, I got a game over on the first enemy of the first level. I'm really bad at this.

If ya haven't heard, Captain Lou Albano passed on recently. I'm sure most people will remember him for his wrestling career, but I and possibly many other gamers will remember him as playing Mario in the Super Mario Bros. Super Show. He did both the live action segments and the voice of Mario in the animated segments. It seems kinda weird now that Charles Martinet has become Mario's official voice, but back in the NES days, Captain Lou essentially was Mario.

He will live on through my daily "Do the Mario" routine.
