David Edwards, a 42-year-old from Anaheim, and David Contreras, a 25-year-old from Huntington Beach, stood together Thursday morning proudly holding up their new purchases. For $121, each had purchased an Albert Pujols No. 5 Angels replica jersey, the eighth and ninth that had been quickly put together. And they were lucky. At 2 p.m., Chris Uhlmansiek, a medical equipment salesman from Brea who was wearing purple scrubs, rushed into the souvenir store at Angel Stadium, but he came out empty-handed.

Goaltender Zach Sikich's NHL career lasted only a few minutes. But he will have great stories to tell his son and newborn daughter about the small role he played Tuesday as the Ducks rallied for a 2-1 victory over the Wild at St. Paul, Minn. It was the Ducks' fourth straight win and eighth straight game with a point (6-0-2). Scheduled starter Viktor Fasth sustained an upper-body injury during the morning skate, thrusting Jonas Hiller into a starting role and leaving the Ducks scrambling for a backup.

Oregon Coach Chip Kelly has agreed to a six-year, $20.5-million contract extension that makes him the Pacific 10 Conference's second-highest-paid coach behind USC's Lane Kiffin . The new deal guarantees Kelly a minimum of $2.4 million this season and could be worth more if Oregon reaches certain performance incentives. Kelly, 46, led Oregon to the Rose Bowl last season in his first year as coach. The fourth-ranked Ducks face No. 9 Stanford on Saturday. "This is an investment in the future success of Oregon athletics and an investment in retaining one of the brightest college coaches in the country," Athletic Director Rob Mullens said in a statement.

NEW YORK -- If you watched the first round of the NFL draft Thursday night, you might have wondered how the league had ready-made No. 1 jerseys with the players' names across the shoulders. Were they Velcro nameplates? Were the picks made far in advance? No, it was a little NFL magic, with an assist from Nike. For the second consecutive year, the NFL had a hot jersey press backstage at Radio City, the nameplates of all 23 players in attendance at the draft, and a Nike employee at the ready to produce a newly minted XL jersey.
