HALL OF FAMERS
Baseball: July 29 at 1:30 p.m., on MLB Network
Football: Aug. 4 at 7 p.m., on NFL Network and ESPN
Cooperstown and Canton welcome new classes of old stars—including (from left) Braves icon Chipper Jones, slugger Vladimir Guerrero, All-Pro wide receivers Terrell Owens and Randy Moss—in two Hall of Fame celebrations this week. Or wait, is it three? Owens announced on June 7 that he would not attend the Pro Football Hall of Fame's official festivities, instead delivering his speech at 3:17 p.m. on the campus of Tennessee--Chattanooga, his alma mater. The Hall of Fame, in return, said it would not mention or honor T.O. individually during the ceremony and will mail him his gold jacket. So let's recap: Mr. I Love Me Some Me gets into an ego-driven squabble to draw attention to himself.... Seriously, how nostalgic is that?
MLS ALL-STARS VS. JUVENTUS
Aug. 1 at 7 p.m., on ESPN
The prospect of Zlatan Ibrahimovi´c (Galaxy All-Star) and Cristiano Ronaldo (Juventus) on the same pitch is almost too much to fathom. With two such massive egos sharing one field, will anyone even notice 20 other players?

Aug. 7 at 10 p.m., on HBO
Who in their right mind would want to see inside the training camp of an 0--16 team that just drafted a quarterback that half the country loathes and will welcome back a receiver who's missed the better part of three years because of suspensions and failed drug tests? O.K., fine. Everyone.
