Chuck Premiere in Bayonne May 12th 2017 is All Smiles and All Pride

I am certain that audiences all over the world are going to fall in love with the movie CHUCK  starring Liev Schreiber as Chuck Wepner and Naomi Watts as Chuck’s wife Linda. 

This movie is a tough, gritty, “other side of the tracks,” love story.

It combines boxing with romance, personal pain and triumph. 

It’s also about, loss, human error, redemption and pride.

CHUCK lets you see Wepner with his goodness (Never knew he wrote poetry), and his human frailty,  his run in with the law, his partying, his coming to grips with the man he should become.

Schreiber in his performance also makes you really like Chuck Wepner and what’s not to like, in real life Chuck Wepner is a likeable guy.

I first met  him  right after he fought Muhammad Ali in the mid- seventies and have run into him on many occasions  through the years, he always offers a big smile and a hello to  everyone  he meets.

So that is why at the Premiere of CHUCK at  Bayonne’s Frank Theater on Friday, May 12th family, friends and fans  of  Chuck Wepner joined together in his honor, and were proud of Bayonne’s favorite son.

Chest busting proud, wide smiles proud, back slapping proud.

 Bayonne  loves Chuck Wepner and perhaps after you watch the movie CHUCK  you will too, and feel  proud that Chuck Wepner got the shot  to fight Muhammad Ali and  the recognition he deserved for being the inspiration for the movie Rocky.

In reality, CHUCK the movie is letting the world know  “Chuck Wepner is the real Rocky.” The Everyman who beats the odds.

And that is a cause we all can get behind.

Here are some photos by Steve Mack from May 12th Premiere event of the movie Chuck in Bayonne

The cheerleaders of Bayonne Elite (ages 4-18) spent St. Patrick’s Day Weekend competing against hundreds of other teams from around the country at the Battle at the Capitol National Competition hosted by Coastal Cheer & Dance. Around 200 athletes, accompanied by their coaches & family members, traveled to National Harbor, MD with only one mission – to take over the capitol.

All 9 teams from the organization, including their two exhibition teams, performed during the two-day competition. Out of the remaining seven teams, Diamonds (large senior level 3) and Rubies (large peewee level 2) came home with National Titles. The highlight of the weekend was when Onyx, their Senior Level 4 Team, was crowned National Champions and received the highest combined score of all the Level 4 teams who competed, in spite of having to restart their routine after a teammate was injured.

Interested in joining the Elite Family? For more information about tryouts or to schedule a walk through of the facility, please email ChelseaAceti@gmail.com
