    I like Louisville’s play lately, and since my wife’s family
    all comes from Lawrence I root for the Jayhawks by proxy, but I’m seriously
    pulling for Gonzaga to make the Final Four.
    I like their attitude, their speed, and the fact they haven’t been
    flip-flopping near the top, but rather have made steady moves throughout the
    year; they seem to be a more consistent and talented team overall. I’m here in Colorado now, and when I work my
    shifts at DISH during the evenings, I still have my iPad to watch the action. I got the new DISH Anywhere app (iOS and Android
    devices), and can take all my live TV and DVR anywhere I go. It’s a lot easier keeping track of scores and
    stats when you’re watching live, and I don’t have to wait to see the game until
    I get home and start the DVR.
