THIS WEEK IN HORIZON (February 1 – 5, 2016)
Kevin C. Garinger – Director of Education

Like many of you, I enjoyed watching the Super Bowl this weekend. While I love watching when I can during the season, there is something about this game, this day, this weekend that is universally understood as it is truly the culminating event. Even if you aren’t a football fan, the half time show is worth watching and, even if you are not a music fan, the commercials seem to always live far beyond the event. Of course, in Canada, we don’t get the American Super Bowl commercials so I took the opportunity to watch them online as I was writing this edition of TWIH. Many of them provide a much appreciated chuckle. As I watched Sunday, I noted that the game was a mix of offense and defense and although the defense stood out, winning or losing was a mix of both.
