The inaugural Padres Public Online Scavenger Hunt is now over and done with and a winner has been named.

For those of you who weren’t paying attention — which based on the number of entries I received wasn’t as much as I expected — Padres Public managed to get a few copies of MLB Bloopers Deluxe Doubleheader and Prime 9: MLB Heroics DVDs from MLB Productions. So, I decided to have a online scavenger hunt through all of my posts in a series of 19 questions.

(If you find yourself asking “Why 19?” you should stop reading this blog and Google “San Diego Padres #19” right now.)

The winner is Nate, aka @Taterz1021 on Twitter, who correctly answered 18 out of the 19 questions I asked.

Let’s take a look at the questions, followed by the answer I was looking for and the post that it was contained in.

The good people at MLB Productions have offered up a couple of MLB Productions Films for Padres Public to give-away.  In case you missed it, the specifics of the promotion were detailed here last week.  I have two (2) copies of the Prime 9:  MLB Heroics DVD that I will be HAPPY to give to you.

Now some people around here have good imaginations.  Sadly, I am not one of those people.  When in doubt, I reach back to the good-old reliable trivia contest.  After the jump, some specifics and the questions.
