2016 NCAA Tournament Update: Tony Bennett tweets that he's fine, and also he hopes Tony Bennett is fine.

This is the best tweet you'll read all day.

Tony Bennett tweeted earlier that he's fine, after learning that Tony Bennett collapsed in the middle of Virginia's big victoryover Hampton in the first round of the 2016 NCAA Tournament. If that sounds confusing, it's not.

That's not THE Tony Bennett, in case you're still confused. That's some other, much older (89) Tony Bennett who apparently sang some songs and had a heart transplant in San Francisco just before moving away. It's a little unclear what this guy's deal is.

Coming out of the half, the real Tony Bennett did a short interview assuring that everything is fine and that he had simply stood up too quickly.

Virginia defeated Hampton handily, 81-45, to advance to the second round, where they'll face ninth-seeded Butler on Saturday.
