We all like ESPN. We all love Tony Bennett. But ESPN may not quite have the same appreciation—at least not if their page for the UVA basketball team has anything to say about it.
As of early Thursday afternoon, ESPN.com was compiling tweets about legendary crooner Tony Bennett (a spry and vital 90 years young) on the Hoos’ profile page.
UVA’s rags to riches story under The Other Tony Bennett (trademark pending) has put Wahoo fans on happiness street. Many of the nation’s top recruits are starting to say, “I wanna be around the good life in Charlottesville,” and the Pack Line defense has made the Cavaliers the kings of broken hearts up and down the ACC. This year’s team—hardened in the crucible of a schedule that’s been no Autumn waltz—should have the mettle to have a good time and not be strangers in paradise come next spring at the Final Four in Phoenix. I certainly won’t cry anymore if Virginia manages to cut down the nets in Arizona, but it’ll be a different story if UVA spends spring in Manhattan competing in the NIT.
