Mighty Macs

An article in yesterday's paper announced a movie currently in production that will be of special interest to anyone educated by the Sisters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary of Immaculata, PA: "Our Lady of Victory" is the story of the Immaculata College women's basketball team, first ever to win the championship for that title (1972). According to the article, the movie is "part 'Sister Act,' part 'Hoosiers' and part 'A League of Their Own'."
Knowing a good many of the "Macs" (as the sisters themselves--not just the team--are often referred to), I am looking forward to the movie about a moment in their history.

Just musing, Do those sisters still dress like that?

It sounds like it will be good. I'll look forward to S. Rose's review, too :)
