What I'm Watching

The Mighty Macs is the inspiring true story of Cathy Rush and her Immaculata College women's basketball team.

I am usually not a fan of sports movies, but this movie is so much more than that. The Mighty Macs really is a story of the underdogs - a group of women that didn't give up no matter what. A story of a coach with a vision and the courage and determination to not only take the journey herself, but bring everyone around her along.

My favorite person in the movie was Sister Sunday. She made me laugh most, but also made me think most. I love the moments when she and Cathy were alone talking. They were both such an encouragement to each other.

You don't want to miss the extras on the DVD as the interviews were fantastic - with not only the actors, but the real life people they portray.

I love cameos in movies and this one didn't disappoint. You can see Cathy, Ed, and several of the Mighty Macs throughout the movie.

I have an extra DVD of the movie to give away here on my blog.

  1. The most encouraging person in my life is my friend, Cheryl. She works full time at her church, has 2 boys and is in seminary full time! I think sometimes that I can't do it anymore and when I think of her, it makes me press on.

  2. It is so neat to have those encouragers in our life that do so sometimes just by living their lives in a way that pushes us forward.

  3. My mom - with her love and patience and forgiveness.
