Freshman Learns Beanpot Not for Eating Beans and Smoking Pot
TD GARDEN — Boston police escorted Alec Pinto (MCAS ‘23) from the Beanpot game on Monday night, following several complaints about an inebriated student eating an unreasonable amount of beans in the stands.
“I thought the Beanpot was the one time a year Boston embraced its passion for baked beans and getting baked,” remarked Pinto, sitting on the curb outside the Garden. “I was really blown away when no one else bought their beans… I should have known it was too good to be true.”
Steven Stevens (CSOM ‘22) described himself as being a friend of utility to Pinto. Stevens reported that he was thrown off when Pinto arrived at their pregame with 24 cans of Boston baked beans wearing only cannabis-inspired muscle shirt and a pair of red “Superfan” sunglasses.
“He walked in completely blazed and started handing everyone cans of beans,” recalled Stevens. “I’ve been to some crazy themed parties, but I think Alec took the Beanpot a little too literally,” he continued while carrying Pinto back to his dorm.
