What’s That? A Scavenger Hunt, You Say?

Well, alrighty then!

Padres Public managed to get their hands on a few free DVD’s of MLB Bloopers Deluxe Doubleheader and Prime 9: MLB Heroics, as detailed in this post on Wednesday. So we’re giving them away to the readers/followers/friends of Padres Public. Some of us are giving them away via Twitter. Some on Facebook. Some are having trivia contests.

I have decided to give away a copy of the MLB Bloopers Deluxe Doubleheader DVD via an online Scavenger Hunt.

First, the rules:

  • All entries must be received by 7pm PDT on Sunday, July 20, 2013.
  • One entry per person/email/Twitter handle.
  • Each question MUST be answered. Any entries not complete will be shot out of a cannon into the sun.
  • Email your answers to this email address with “Padres Public Scavenger Hunt” in the subject line.
  • Include your first and last names and your Twitter handle (if applicable) in the email.
  • Winner will be the person who answers the most questions correctly.
  • In the event of a tie, the winner will be selected randomly, most likely by dartboard or possibly by rochambeau. The losers will be made fun of. So will the winner, for that matter.
  • Winner will be notified by email no later than Tuesday, July 23, 2013.
  • Only residents of the USA or Canada qualify. Sorry, Mexico. Maybe next time.
  • Members of Padres Public are not eligible. This includes guest writers. Tough luck, Corey Brock and Andy Masur.
  • Winners of the video from another Padres Public writer are disqualified and need not enter. This includes Padres And Pints.


Now, for the questions. You will find (almost) all the answers within my posts here on Padres Public. Some will be easy. A few will take some digging. That’s why I’m giving you guys a couple of days.
