It might seem like my posts read less like a student or scholar, and more like a sports commentator. I think I was influenced by watching the formal monastic debates on the first day. They really turn debate into a full-on sport. The intellectual, verbal AND physical energy level they bring to it, and the size and engagement of the audience, is like the best of sports. Later outside the hall I will try to find a link to a good video that shows the style, for those who haven’t seen it before.
