Back The Macs
On Friday October 14th I had the privilege to go to the Red Carpet World Premiere of The Mighty Macs a movie that is based on the Immaculata’s Basketball team and how they made the impossible possible. Mighty Macs stars Carla Gugino as Cathy Rush the coach for the Immaculata Basketball team, and David Boreanaz who plays Ed Rush Cathy’s husband and a basketball referee. The movie starts out with the team playing badly but as it goes on Cathy gets them to play like a real team which is what takes them to the national championship game. Based on the true story the Macs ultimately won 3 championship games in a row in 1972,73, and 74.
The movie is a fun film that your all whole family will enjoy. It’s such an inspiring movie that should be told and seen time and time again. With so many great quotes in this movie like when Cathy tells the dean Mother St John that she would have coached the team for free. This is such a treasured story to be told and the movie really should be seen by everyone. Even if you are not a sports fan you will be a fan of this movie. With there not being too many films that you can take your whole family to this is one that I would definitely recommend for everyone to see. It will inspire you to do anything you want to do even if it seems impossible. Mighty Macs opens nationwide on Friday October 21st go grab your tickets and back those Macs.
