Cover Girl has landed in the unflattering spotlight of the NFL domestic abuse scandal as activists pressuring sponsors to boycott the league circulate a doctored ad of a female football fan with a black eye. Hunt Valley-based Cover Girl, the official beauty sponsor of the NFL, is behind the "Get Your Game Face On" ad campaign featuring models wearing the jerseys and makeup colors of each of the league's 32 teams. That includes the Baltimore Ravens, where Ray Rice was a running back until his $35 million contract was terminated last week after a video surfaced that showed him knocking his fiancee unconscious in an elevator.

Rudy Arias, Orioles bullpen catcher What do guys do to occupy their time in the bullpen early in a game? You try to stay loose. Once the fourth or fifth inning rolls around, depending on the score, everybody gets their game face on. But for the first couple innings, guys are flicking seeds and stuff like that.

Even after fighting back to tie the game in the fourth quarter, host No. 2 seed Syracuse could not break through against Bryant, which never trailed en route to a 10-9 upset on Sunday night. Led by attacker Tucker James' four goals and two assists, the Bulldogs (16-4) surprised the Orange (11-5) in the first round of the NCAA Division I tournament. Bryant will face Maryland in a quarterfinal Saturday at Hofstra. The Orange outshot the Bulldogs 38-27, but Bryant goalkeeper Gunnar Waldt made 13 saves and his team won 14 of 23 faceoffs.

For several years John Weiss, a professor of art at the University of Delaware, has traveled the country photographing baseball players -- both established stars and younger players. His photos have been gathered in a book, "The Face of Baseball," and 40 of the works from the book are included in an exhibit at the Babe Ruth Birthplace and Baseball Center. Among the players pictured are the three Ripkens -- Cal Sr. and Jr. and Bill -- and Orioles Mike Flanagan, Ken Singleton and Dennis Martinez.

For die-hard Orioles fans, Opening Day is the place to be - no matter what. Despite a cold drizzle and not-so-warm predictions for the Baltimore team, a crowd gathered to watch the 6-2 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays last Monday. They donned their baseball attire and marched to Camden Yards, hoping for a win. Despite the loss, true believers remained unshaken. "You've got to love your hometown team," said Tito Aracia of Lanham. "It's one of the few things you can rely on in this world, coming out to see your team on Opening Day."

Given the chance, the odds would be long that Prince George's County residents would approve a referendum to allow legalized card games at a financially troubled racetrack in the county. Religious leaders don't like it. Civic leaders aren't fond of it. And local civil rights leaders say the games could move Prince George's, the country's most affluent majority-black county, several steps backward. The Maryland Senate recently passed a bill that could bring Las Vegas-style table games, including poker and blackjack, to Rosecroft Raceway in Fort Washington.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - When the Orioles left Baltimore for their final series of the regular season, manager Buck Showalter said that one of his team's main goals was to make sure it hadn't played its final game at Camden Yards of 2012. And the one thing the Orioles could control entering their regular-season finale against the Tampa Bay Rays at Tropicana Field on Wednesday night was ensuring a home playoff game with a win. But at the end of a season in which they overcame obstacles and resuscitated baseball in Baltimore, the Orioles' bats fell silent against the best pitching staff in the game.

Prepare for battle, Baltimore, because a wave of miniature armies is on its way this weekend. Watch out for the Wood Elves of Warhammer, whose loyalty to good or evil is unknown, and make way for the heroic Hobbits of the Lord of the Rings. These armies and more will meet at Games Day 2010, an event taking place at the Baltimore Convention Center for Games Workshop's three board games: Warhammer, Warhammer 40,000 and Lord of the Rings Strategy Battle Game. It's about more than war this weekend, though.

There comes a point in every man's life when he sits back, puts his feet up on the desk and thinks: How can I get a gig doing something I love that involves no heavy lifting? Ladies and gentlemen, I have found that gig. So let's get the introductions out of the way first, shall we? The name is Kevin Cowherd, and after years of writing a features column for The Baltimore Sun, I switch over today to writing a sports column. Actually, this is my second time with this gig - I was a sports columnist with The Evening Sun from 1981 to 1987.

JUST WHEN San Francisco Chronicle sportswriter Jane Gottesman must have been putting the finishing touches on a seven-year mission to collect the rare photographs of women playing sports, Brandi Chastain took her shirt off. That act of uninhibited joy, which punctuated the 1999 World Cup victory of the American women's team, had been practiced by victorious male athletes forever. But the fact that a woman did it changed the nature of the conversation about women and sports. Thanks to Title IX, girls and women have been given more and varied opportunities to play sports for almost 30 years.

Four starts into what some might call a solid rookie season, Marshal Yanda is still searching for the perfect performance. "I'd say I still have a long, long way to go to be the player I want to be," the right offensive tackle said yesterday. "I've got a lot of learning to do. There's still stuff out there that I'm not 100 percent completely down with. I've just got to keep on improving, and it's going to be a long road. I need to get better every day. That's pretty much my goal." It's the kind of statement that the Ravens have come to expect from the modest Yanda, who a year ago could barely contemplate making an NFL roster.
