Did you hear? The Virginia Cavaliers are headed back to the Final Four for the first time in 35 years. You’re going crazy. Former players are going crazy. Everyone is going crazy. It’s been a long time coming, and after what this team and its fans went through last season, this has been a dream story in the making.
Here’s one of the best celebration videos you’ll see all night — a rare sighting of an emotional (good feels this time!) Tony Bennett after cutting down the net. We love seeing that fire burn, but can someone please take those scissors away from him? We’re concerned.

The post-game celebration in the locker room was also passion-fueled, but again, not without safety concerns. Does Jack Salt realize what a massive human he is?

And the celebrations continued as the Hoos came back to the team hotel, full of fans giving the team their proper due:

Meanwhile, in Charlottesville, the party has been raging on the Corner. Washington Post reporter Ava Wallace, formerly on the UVA beat, captured this outside of Boylan:

And she managed to also capture this bride who’s enjoying the best day of her life, which also happens to overlap with her wedding day:
