Boston College Women’s Soccer Player Stephanie McCaffrey Makes Rape Jokes on Twitter

The Boston College Women’s Soccer team is already in town for tomorrow’s 7:30 p.m. match against Penn State at Jeffrey Field, and one of its players is — to put it lightly — “talking some trash.” Hailing from Winchester, Massachusetts, sophomore forward Stephanie McCaffrey took to Twitter earlier this afternoon to voice her displeasure with having to play at Penn State in the second round of the NCAA Tournament.

Stephanie (@stephyymac), whose Twitter bio is “Just off the binky, time to get kinky,” had this to say:

 

 

 

Boston College safety Sean Sylvia (@SeanSylvia19) also RTed and commended McCaffrey on her remarks.

If you attend the game tomorrow, it might be in your best interest to boo number nine every time she touches the ball. But if the ignorance and vitriol of these Tweets reaches the Boston College coaches, chances are she won’t be seeing the field anyway.

(UPDATE 5:06 p.m. — It appears Stephanie has deleted her Tweets, as well as her entire Twitter account. What a shame.)

(UPDATE 9:13 p.m. — McCaffrey has been suspended from the game tomorrow. Boston College Athletic Director Bob Bates released this statement: “The student-athlete used very poor judgment and exhibited insensitivity towards Penn State for which she apologizes. This type of behavior is not tolerated among our student-athletes.”)

Hometown Brewery Releases Beer Honoring Evan Pugh

Penn State’s first president Evan Pugh was born in 1828 at Jordan Bank Farm, three miles south of the city center of Oxford, Pennsylvania, an hour west of Philadelphia in Chester County. One-hundred eighty-nine years later, an Oxford brewery is honoring one of the preeminent champions of “liberal and practical” higher education in the form of a delicious Porter.
