The Super Bowl is over, but Dallas hosted another kind of contest this weekend with international implications - and a slightly smaller audience. The third annual Old Parkland Debate tournament featured high school and college debaters from across the U.S. and teams from several countries. Meet the Cambridge University team that beat the Oxford University debaters to claim the college division win.

Update, Monday:  At the international debate contest that businessman Harlan Crow sponsored over the weekend at his refurbished Old Parkland Hospital, team England won. Team Australia came in second.

Original story: Some of the best high school debaters from not just the nation, but the world, were in Dallas this weekend. They flew in courtesy of Dallas’ own real estate and business magnate, Harlan Crow, of Crow Holdings.
