“The Mighty Macs” DVD- review & giveaway

“In 1971, Cathy Rush, a woman ahead of her time, takes a job as the head women’s basketball coach at Immaculata College. Rush faces a challenge of trying to compete against perennial powerhouses. Seven members of the 1972 Immaculata championship team appear as nuns in a church scene.”

My Thoughts-
I really wanted to see “the Mighty Macs” when it was in the theatres last year, I played basketball in Junior High and High School and I wanted to see this true story about the beginning of women’s basketball as we know it.
I’m very happy I got to review the dvd of this movie. It’s about a all girls College back in the 70′s. Coach Rush comes in and teaches and pushes these girls to believe in themselves and their teammates. Women were taught that their roll was in the house taking care of their husband. So these girls didn’t know they could live their dreams and become whatever they wanted. And in Couch Rush’s first year there they went from being the long shots at winning the nationals, to winning.
I also watched the special features, which I highly recommend you do. The special features go through the lives of the original team back in 1972 and you even get to meet the real Coach Rush. I learned so much about the importance of this story in our world now and fell in love with the movie even more.
I would totally recommend this movie to everyone. Sports fans, men & women, and families will all love it.
