...in Goldeneye 007 for the Wii and I kicked his ASS!  The guys name was Vinny and this is the only place I have seen with a guy named that Lol. When will their review be up?

I work with a 50 year old pizza delivery boy named Vinny- it was probably him. Oh, he's really creepy and has prostate cancer. Sorry.

Chances are it wasn't him, still you can only hope.

@RonnyLive007: You're right, Vinny Caravella is the only Vinny in the entire world that plays video games. You cracked the code. Congratulations.

It's amusing yet slightly sad that the online community in Wii games is so dead that we think we can track down individuals in the game by knowing their first name.

Well, that's what Nintendo gets for asserting that gamers don't care about online play.

Are you sure it wasn't Vinny from Jersey Shore?

Could have been this Vinny, and you better let him win.

It's strange, I JUST went up to Dallas and met 2 and a half Vinny's... One was at a Pawn Shop then the next one was at the shooting range and the third one was a midget body builder (that was also in the military o.O) at the Chinese buffet Lol. Guess the name is common, who'da thunk it?

I'm sorry. I'm just not white enough to remember the 80's fondly.

 Is it hard to believe that I really thought there weren't that many people named Vinny? WTFLOL
