Sporty book typography

Hi all,

I'm looking at designing books for a sports book publisher. To that end I want to choose one serif and one sanserif type family which can be applied to all books, but are large enough to allow for a decent amount of variation.

The serif I think should be clean and modern, with a serious touch. Right now I'm considering Utopia. For the sans I would like a lot of weights, and also oblique forms (preferably true italics). I'm thinking serious, but with a twist. Interstate has occurred to me, but I'm not sure how well it works together with Utopia.

Any suggestions?
