Man Picks His Nose on Camera at Trailblazers Game, Winks at Us

Another day, another deep-nasal expedition on live television.

The Knicks-Trailblazers got off to a...different start on Thursday night when the pre-game broadcast on the floor was interrupted by a moment of roguish nose-pickery.

Sportscasters Chris Webber and Kevin Harlan were jumping right into some pre-tipoff keys for the matchup when a silver fox of a man seated behind them started a-digging.

The man’s gaze remains far off as he chisels—perhaps thinking of yesteryear when gas was a nickel per gallon and men were free to pick their nose as they pleased.

And as if that weren’t good enough, he then pulls his finger away for a moment and inspects it like an old gold rusher pulling up his pan from a river bed. He takes one look, appears non-plussed and then it happens: the wink.

The man turns to the camera and throws a knowing wink, like James Bond running game on a cocktail waitress. Which begs the thought: "My god, was this all planned?"

Have you ever seen such an example of such brazen gold-mining in your entire life? It’s hard to say, but in recent memory, it’s hard to think of one. 

We have to believe this was a set up and that this man is working for someone—but who?

MI-6? The Free Masons? The Triads?!

We may never know.
