Black Ops: “Somebody Get A Sponge”

I play Black Ops at a rather unique time of day. Normally between 5:20am and 10Am.  Most normally between 8am and 10am.  This morning I experienced a wonderful “Somebody Get a Sponge” moment during a game of Domination on the Jungle map.  As many of you know who play the game, each side has a sniper’s perch located off the main team camp to the left.  At the very beginning of the game one of my teammates who has a live mic calls out ” There’s a sniper up there on their sniper thing.” I believe his name was MeanGreenSchween, or something to that effect, there may or may not have been more E’s in his name.

Our team is not winning.  Personally, I’m just trying to accomplish some inane contract like extended mags perk kills or killing 5 people with an M1911, so I could give a shit about the sniper on the perch.  Apparently the rest of my team felt the same way.  The sniper however kept shooting people which aggravated MGSchween to no end, because, he told us he was there.  Since he identified the problem it was our responsibility to take the sniper out.  He was absolved of any action since he had told us loudly over the microphone that the sniper was there.

Over the course of the 6, 7, maybe 8 minute game, he melted down completely because no one took out the sniper.  When the sniper unleashed the killer dogs killstreak, I thought Mr. Schween was going to have an aneurysm.  He absolutely flipped out.  He could not grasp the fact that no one gave a shit about the Sniper but him, nor did he realize that no matter how many times you took the sniper out, the guy would just go back to the perch because THAT’S THE BEST PLACE TO SNIPE FROM IN THE MAP IF YOU’RE A SNIPER.

If you haven’t seen the “Somebody Get a Sponge” episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm by all means look it up.
