CALLING ALL GAME BOY PLAYERS ... COME IN ALL GAME BOY PLAYERS ... WE WANT YOU

 America, It's Time To Put it Down and Come Out of the Closet
 REDMOND, Wash., May 4 /PRNewswire/ -- C'mon we're all adults. Fess up. You can no longer blame it on the kids, don't even attempt to hide it under your pillow and please try to keep it out of the office.
 You ask, what is it? O.K. America, it's a difficult one to admit, but it's true ... more than half of the 12 million who own it are adults. And, we all know what it is -- it is Game Boy. Now the tables have turned and Game Boy needs you.
 Stop convincing yourself video games are just for kids. We know your type, sneak a few games of Tetris before the meeting, tee up for an afternoon on the course with a game of Golf while traveling or save the solar system before bed in a quick game of Solar Striker. Adult usage of Game Boy is the fastest-growing trend in the video game industry.
 Come out, come out, wherever you are. Game Boy adults are everywhere. A Catholic priest in California calls Game Boy "a little bit of heaven," a mother from Colorado can't choose between Game Boy and the laundry, the slam-dunking star of the Orlando Magic, Shaquille O'Neal plays Game Boy on the road, and Mark Lenzi, 1992 Olympic Diving Gold Medalist, often clears his mind with a game of Tetris before a "big dive."
 Calling all Game Boy Fanatics. When's the last time you played Game Boy? Who's your biggest competition -- your wife, daughter or boss? What's your favorite game? Where do you play it most? What's your most fascinating Game Boy story? If you are an athlete, lawyer, doctor, policeman, stockbroker, actor, writer, taxi driver, student, politician, judge, pilot, electrical technician, musician or singer -- and can't put down Game Boy, we want you.
 Tell us your deepest, darkest Game Boy secrets. Write to the following address and don't forget to include your name, address and phone number (optional): Game Boy Fan Club, 601 W. Fifth St., Fourth Floor, Los Angeles, CA 90071.
