Look: Ravens tweet, then delete photo of Queen Elizabeth II with face paint

The Baltimore Ravens learned a valuable lesson in the laws of social media Tuesday.

When you tweet something out, people will screenshot it and keep it forever.

Just under a week from traveling to Wembley Stadium to take on the Jacksonville Jaguars, the Ravens apparently thought it would be tasteful to share a Photoshopped picture of Queen Elizabeth II sporting Ravens face paint.

The photo was promptly deleted, but thanks to the quick actions of ESPN’s Bill Barnwell, this photo has now been saved for all eternity in the archives of regrettable Twitter decisions.

Barnwell couldn't resist holding the Ravens accountable for the questionable choice of tweet, and even decided to take things one step further.

Report: Kings’ Randolph won’t face jail time in marijuana case

Sacramento Kings power forward Zach Randolph will not face jail time after pleading no contest to resisting arrest – while prosecutors agreed to drop his second misdemeanor for possession of more than one ounce of marijuana – according to TMZ Sports.

The 36-year-old was initially charged for felony possession of marijuana with intent to sell following his arrest in Los Angeles on Aug. 9. Charges were later reduced to the two misdemeanors – possession of more than one ounce of marijuana and resisting arrest.

Randolph was reportedly sentenced to 150 hours of community service as part of a diversion program. Should the 6-foot-9 big man complete the hours and stay out of trouble for 12 months, the resisting arrest charge will also be removed from his record.

Randolph is due back in court in December for a progress report.

Wood: Dodgers getting ‘punched in the face’ was bound to happen this season

With Sunday’s 6-4 loss to the San Diego Padres, the Los Angeles Dodgers have lost seven of their last eight games and look shakier than at any other moment in 2017. This is a team that went on a dominant 68-18 stretch that started in mid-May and ended just over a week ago.

Despite the recent tailspin, Dodgers players aren’t panicking. Pitcher Alex Wood took the loss on Sunday for only the second time this season, allowing four runs on seven hits over six innings. The lefty basically said they can’t all be diamonds.

“I think it’s a statistical improbability to go the whole year without getting punched in the face,” Wood told the Los Angeles Times’ Andy McCullough.

And punched in the face they have been, losing three of four to the lowly Padres after being swept by the surging Arizona Diamondbacks – the first sweep the Dodgers have suffered all season.

First baseman Cody Bellinger – who broke the franchise rookie record for home runs on Sunday – recently returned from injury, but doesn't seem overly concerned about the team's recent skid.

“I’m not worried,” Bellinger said. “And I know no one in this clubhouse is worried about what’s happened in this past week.”

Losing isn’t fun, but the Dodgers just haven’t done much of it this year. The team still has a remarkable 92-44 record, sitting 13 1/2 games ahead of the Diamondbacks even after their rivals have won 10 straight. Barring an unprecedented and cataclysmic end to the season, the Dodgers should saunter into the playoffs with ease.

The Dodgers head home for three games against those pesky desert snakes on Monday, however, so things might be a little more interesting by the time the Colorado Rockies come to town on Thursday.

Watch: Mets’ Flores fouls ball off his face

In the second game of Saturday’s New York MetsHouston Astros doubleheader, Wilmer Flores swung at a 2-2 pitch, but got under it, thrusting it into his nose.

After going to the hospital for X-rays, the Mets third baseman was diagnosed with a broken nose, according to MLB.com's Anthony DiComo.

It was an unfortunate nightcap for Flores, who was one of the team’s lone bright spots in the first game, drilling a grand slam to make things interesting before the Mets ultimately lost 12-8.

Face of Jesus Appears in Sonogram, Couple Claims

Okay, bear with us please, because this is more than a little weird.

Just about every modern pregnancies comes with at least one sonogram, an image of a fetus in development that doctors use to monitor health and development. Parents use it to share their excitement.

But one couple spotted something a little odd on their sonogram. And it looked, to them, like Jesus.

You see it, right? Right there on the left.

You see what looks like a long-haired guy with a beard.

Culturally, we’re taught to recognize that, not as Poseidon or basically any dude from the 1970s, but as Jesus.

This sonogram was taken shortly before Briella was born.

Briella’s parents, Alicia Zeek and Zac Smith, were struck immediately by the distinctive image in their sonogram.

Alicia and Zac, of Chambersburg, Pennsylvania, spoke about the phenomenon.

“When they gave it to us… Umm, to me, it’s Jesus,” Alicia says. “And it looks like Jesus.”

At first, she couldn’t believe her eyes.

“I blinked a lot, to kinda make sure I was really seeing it…”

Zac also spoke about it.

“This is distinct — I mean, there’s another face looking at my daughter!”

The couple say that they’re not particularly religious, but Zac describes a very emotional response to the image.

“When I seen it, it almost brought tears to my eyes… I was speechless, I just couldn’t believe it, I really didn’t believe what I was seeing.”

This from a couple who describe themselves as not being particularly religious.

Alicia Zeek

From people reporting that they’ve seen Jesus’ image appear “miraculously” on toast to pointing out that they see Jesus take shape around their dog’s butthole …

(Yes, really)

… it’s very common for people to spot what they’ll describe as an image of Jesus’ face on everyday items.

We’ll get into the psychology behind that in a moment, but we should acknowledge that it’s fairly widespread.

But many regard such appearances as novelty items.

(Though often devout Christians are irritated by what they see as frivolous claims of “miracles” that they feel embarrass their religious community)

For Alicia and Zac, however, this was a positive omen.

Zac describes his interpretation: “The angel or God or Jesus, however you want to propose it, I look at it as my blessing.”

Alicia and Zac had two very difficult pregnancies, with their first child being born with a series of complications and their second chidlbirth nearly claiming Alicia’s life.

Briella, who was born healthy, is their third child.

Zac Smith

We’re not going to tell anyone what to believe, of course.

The thing is that human beings are psychologically wired to pick out hidden faces.

This makes a lot of sense for the survival of our species — to recognize each other, but also to spot ambushes or other threats.

The same thing applies to recognizing familiar iconography.

Some images are so omnipresent in our culture that, regardless of someone’s beliefs, 

You can grow up non-religious in a non-religious household and still have angels and Jesus and everything firmly embedded in your psyche, because Christianity has dominated Western culture for a full millennium.

But Christians who believe that these apparitions — even the seemingly irreverent ones — are genuine omens would point out that just because the human mind constantly searches for “faces” doesn’t mean that a genuine face couldn’t show up.

That’s fair.

As for Alicia and Zac, we’re just glad that they found it comforting at the end of a very tense pregnancy.
