Calling All "Contenders"

Remember the line from "Pulp Fiction" about Elvis and The Beatles?

There are only two kinds of people in the world, Beatles people and Elvis people. Now Beatles people can like Elvis and Elvis people can like the Beatles, but nobody likes them both equally. Somewhere you have to make a choice. And that choice, tells you who you are.

Well...I believe the same could be said about your gaming systems.

I was never a big Nintendo guy...I liked Sega.  I prefer my Dr. Pepper over Mr. Pibb, too...but that's a whole different conversation for another time.

Anyway...back to Nintendo people.

Video gaming site Kotaku posted an from an Oklahoma newspaper where an avid fan of the NES game RBI Baseball boasted that he or she (but let's face, it's a dude) cannot be defeated on the classic 8-bit game.

The ad goes on to provide a phone number for "contenders" to call and given the 405 area code...dude is located somewhere around the Oklahoma City area.
