There's another bugle melody called "Charge"? The only one I know of is this one.
There's only one and the one you linked is not it.

I'm not. The one you linked is not a bugle call. It's usually someone hitting 6 notes on a piano.

At old ball stadiums, an organ, more likely, but I think most of the newer ball stadiums got rid of their organ systems and now it's just somebody pressing a sample button.

Still not a bugle call, necessarily, although I don't see why it couldn't be played on a bugle.

That's what threw me. You say "Charge", most people think the six-note fanfare. No reason to think it can't be played on a bugle.

About half the MLB stadiums have live organists at this point -- it's not really new versus old, it's just a matter of which teams want to pay someone to do it. (The three oldest stadiums have an organist -- Fenway Park, Wrigley Field, Dodger Stadium -- but not the fourth-oldest, Angel Stadium. Tropicana Field, Petco Park, and SunTrust Park are examples of other stadiums from various "eras" that all have organists.)

My bar trivia teammates and I are aghast that the Hilton Head question was a Triple Stumper.

I've heard of Hilton Head, but didn't know it was an island.

You're in good company. Marge Simpson once wrote a book about Nantucket not knowing that it was an island.

Once I was en route to Montreal with a sweet woman and said we'd be on the island within 45 minutes. "Montreal is an island?" she asked curiously. "Une île, une ville," I replied with the confidence of someone who paid attention during French class.

I'd rather cuddle then have sex. If you're into grammar, you'll understand.

Une ville, non?

Hopefully this game will silence all the Emma doubters. She is truly a top-shelf player.
I think a lot more of us were in the position that it was unfair to award Emma a spot in the ToC rather than being "Emma doubters." I think it was pretty clear Emma had the skill, but the standard for picking ToC participants has historically been number of games won, and she wouldn't have made it by that criterion. This position isn't critical of Emma, it's critical of the show's selection process (even if it's very clear why they'd want Emma in this tournament).
I’m with Kirk. She may very well win the TOC and all future Super TOCs, but I just disagree with how she got in.

Note...I have not yet seen the first SF game so I don’t know if she is still in it at this point in time.
