Every week in sports has its share of ridiculousness, controversy, and finger pointing. However, this week appears to have an unbalanced amount of ridiculousness.

Do you know who's fault it is?

Yep, the Green Bay Packers.

At least that is what the midwest grocery chain Roundy's indicated in it's weak Q1 earnings released this week.

Courtesy Solitude Canyon Investment Advisors:

This sounds like it's straight from the pages of the Onion...in their earnings press release, midwest grocer Roundy's said their Q1 sales came in light because:

Will it be the Packers fault if the Lakers lose tonight?"results were also negatively affected by lower sales during the 2012 pro football postseason playoffs compared to 2011 when the Green Bay Packers appeared in the Super Bowl."

Seriously, you're blaming the Packers?

Meanwhile, Andrew Bynum of the Los Angeles Lakers refused to be out done by some silly corporate executive justifying their existence by pointing the finger at the Green Bay Packers playoff performance. 

Earlier this week, with his Los Angeles Lakers in control of a best of seven series against the Denver Nuggets 3-1, Bynum decided it was time to voice his opinion of "close out" games.

Courtesy Larry Brown Sports:

Lakers fans looking for someone to blame for the 102-99 Game 5 loss to the Nuggets on Tuesday night have a scapegoat: Andrew Bynum.

The Lakers center said prior to the potential series-ending game that “Close-out games are actually kind of easy. Teams tend to fold if you come out and play hard in the beginning, so we want to come out and establish an early lead and protect it.”

Yeah- what 'Drew said.

Tune into Game 7 tonight as the Lakers attempt to close out the Nuggets for the third time this week.  Maybe third time is the charm...eh 'Drew?

Finally, reviewing the positive side of "ridiculousness," look no further than Josh Hamilton of the Texas Rangers. 

Since May 7, Hamilton has nine home runs.  Nine.

Hamilton has hit five more home runs than the San Diego Padres in the 2012 MLB season (18-13), and he has moved within one home of the team totals of the Chicago Cubs and Minnesota Twins (19).   

Good:  Josh Hamilton

Not Good:  Roundy's grocery and Andrew Bynum.

Until Next Time,
