John Moffitt: Nosepicker extraordinaire

Boy do I have a treat for you guys today. John Moffitt, Offensive Lineman coming out of Wisconsin, was caught at the combine employing three separate techniques in a span of about 30 seconds (and eats them no less). This is stupendous. He is projected to go in the 3rd round, but that is absurd. A man as agile as he is with his hands, and creative as he is in his nosepicking techniques deserves no less than the 1st round. For being 6'4" and 319lbs, he picks his nose like someone 100 lbs less. For that, I tip my hat to you John. Way to show the other prospects at the combine up. Here are his final results from the combine:

40 time: 5.55 

Bench Press: 23 reps 
Vertical Jump: 30.5" 
Broad Jump: 8'6" 
20-yd shuttle: 4.53 
3-cone drill: 7.79

# of Nosepick Techniques: 3

 As I suspected he was a chronic picker, I did a little more research on him and I went to the youtube! Lo and behold on the first video I clicked, his hands were around his nose constantly and I captured a double nostril clamp. John did not disappoint. This really was almost too much to take in. To have so much material from one person. This is hall of fame worthy.

Because I'm feeling bitter, here's Matt Howard picking his nose again.

Capturing picks while live streaming is a little more difficult than I thought

but fear not, I have installed a program to record the screen while the games are on and with a little luck I will capture a couple in the upcoming sweet 16 games.

In the meantime, here's a picture of Bud Selig repeatedly picking his nose at a Congressional hearing a few years ago on the superserious issue of steroids in baseball. Bud Selig represents the gentleman's game, so steroids simply can not be allowed in the game. Picking your nose in front of representatives in Congress, however, is encouraged.

March Madness approaches

Hundreds of collegiate athletes are about to be featured all over television and online for the next month, and you know what that means: There will be plenty of nosepicks. I look forward to bringing you the best Nosepicking March Madness coverage that you can't see anywhere else. As a nice appetizer, we have Jack Cooley of Notre Dame clearing out the nostrils during a free throw attempt. Congratulations Jack! You're the first pick of the Tournament season! Try to keep your ego in check though. I understand the fame that comes with being featured on this site, but you gotta stay humble as Notre Dame looks to make a run during the tournament. It may feel like it, but being featured here is not the National Championship. Try to keep that in mind.

So stay tuned during the Tournament for all the best nosepick analysis and follow us at twitter.com/THE_REAL_APTN for 140 characters of shameless pandering to athletes and of course you the fans.

Happy 1 Year Anniversary APTN!

Bron Bron takes time out of his busy schedule to celebrate the first birthday of his favorite site!

Joakim Noah is all about the intangibles

It's Spring Break and here I am slaving in my living room, poring over replays of basketball games when I could be relaxing on the beach. All this to deliver more content to you. With that said, this site doesn't exist without athletes shamelessly picking their noses during sporting events. During one of the many recent Heat collapses against the Bulls, Joakim Noah had an inspired game. He brings more than just points and rebounds, it's really about the intangibles with him. Despite a pedestrian 11 points and 8 rebounds, Noah had 2 solid nosepicks. The second of which was an impressive nose tug that really brought the team up. Judging how the Bulls were able to close it out, Noah's energy and powerful nosepicks provided the spark necessary. He's just a fun player to watch picking his nose. Remember beautiful people, the sacrifices I've been making are for you, all in the name bringing the latest athletes picking their noses.

Joachim Low, a nosepicking all star

One of my favorite moments of the World Cup last year was Joachim Low picking his nose in shame. It seems to be that he has made a habit out of this now, with another nosepick that caught the eye of the German public. He exhibits the same shame we see earlier, as I'm beginning to think it's permanently plastered on his face. He really tries to be sneaky about it, but this guy has to realize that as a head coach, there are cameras on him at all times during the games. This type of nosepicking/eating might fly in everyday life when there aren't thousands of people looking at you, but at a soccer match you will get caught, as he has multiple times. and God bless him for it.
