He had received the call he was waiting for. Now we were getting ours. "Mom, Dad, I'm going to Miami tomorrow. They called me up. " It was Labor Day, and on the line was our 22-year-old son, Matt, who had just been told that his lifelong dream would be realized. The Florida Marlins were promoting him to the major leagues as part of the team's September roster expansion. The next day, for the first time, he would be dressing in a major league uniform for a regular-season game.

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. - Nick Saban and Brian Kelly dropped strong hints Saturday they would be coaching at Alabama and Notre Dame beyond Monday night's Bowl Championship Series title game. It's understandable the men leading the top two college football teams into the sport's top game would be considered candidates for several NFL vacancies. Saban, seeking his third national title in six years at Alabama, had the more adamant denial. "I don't have any unfinished business in the NFL," Saban said at Saturday's media day at Sun Life Stadium.

Alberto Callaspo , limited last week to two pinch-hit appearances because of a hamstring pull, Monday ran at 100% and Angels Manager Mike Scioscia said the third baseman will probably start Tuesday night. With Callaspo returning, the Angels recalled reliever Michael Kohn from triple-A Salt Lake and returned infielder Andrew Romine to Salt Lake, a move that boosted their pitching staff from 11 to 12 players. Kohn opened the season with the Angels but appeared in only five games, compiling a 4.91 earned-run average, before being sent to Salt Lake on April 10, a demotion that surprised the 24-year-old right-hander who was 2-0 with a 2.11 ERA in 24 games in 2010.

Earlier this season, before returning to play at Philadelphia for the first time as a visitor, Washington's Donovan McNabb joked about accidentally coming out of the home team's tunnel. Minnesota's Brett Favre might say the same thing about playing the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field. After all, Favre has started 118 games at that legendary stadium, tying him with Denver great John Elway (118 at Mile High Stadium) for the most starts by a quarterback at a given venue. Favre on Sunday will own that record alone.

The Florida Marlins broke up the monotony of a dismal June with the hiring of 80-year-old interim Manager Jack McKeon, whose introductory news conference Monday injected some much-needed humor into one of baseball's bleakest situations. The respite was temporary. The Marlins went back to their losing ways Monday night, falling to the Angels, 2-1, in Sun Life Stadium, extending their losing streak to 11, which tied a franchise record set twice in 1998, and losing for the 21st time in 23 games.

Reporting from Miami Andre Ethier was smiling and laughing. It was easy for him to be pleasant. Ethier hit a 10th-inning home run Wednesday to lead the Dodgers past the Florida Marlins, 5-4, at Sun Life Stadium. His hitting streak reached 24 games. He would soon be on his way back to Los Angeles, where he would get a day to spend with his family before his team opened a three-game series against the San Diego Padres. Told that Marlins right-hander Brian Sanches hadn't given up a run in 132/3 innings leading to Ethier's home run, the outfielder laughed and said, "I'm glad I didn't know that before.

The 49ers may have lost Super Bowl XLVII in January, but San Francisco has already won Super Bowl L. At least it has won the right to host the game. The Bay Area was awarded the 50th Super Bowl after an NFL owners vote  Tuesday. The game will take place in 2016 at the 49ers' yet-to-be-opened new stadium in Santa Clara. “After losing a Super Bowl [to the Baltimore Ravens], it feels really good to win a Super Bowl,” joked 49ers Chief Executive Jed York, whose team's new facility will open for the 2014 season.
