It's vacation time for most folks, and it's also the perfect time to escape from all those boring playoff pictures, free agency trackers and title fights. Why not lie back, kick up your feet and relish some totally pointless bad sporting events?

MLB

Mets at Giants

(July 20, 4:05 p.m. ET, FS1)

The Mets spent the early summer hiring 82-year-old coaches and threatening reporters, while the Giants were yelling about home run celebrations. It can lead to only one thing -- Get Off My Lawn Day at the ballpark!

NFL

Broncos vs. Falcons

(Aug. 1, 8 p.m. ET, NBC)

If you're lucky, you'll get 15 minutes of Joe Flacco vs. Matt Ryan in this HOF Game matchup -- followed by three quarters of guys who can't beat out Joe Flacco and Matt Ryan. Helloooo, Kevin Hogan!
