'Still, We Believe': Die-Hard Red Sox Fans Profiled

The citizens of the "Red Sox Nation" are perhaps the most faithful -- and broken-hearted -- of all baseball fans. Their hope, enthusiasm and sorrow are documented in a new film, Still, They Believe: The Boston Red Sox Movie. NPR's Robert Siegel talks with director Paul Doyle about the enduring love affair between the Boston baseball team and its fans, despite the team's so-far unsuccessful decades-long hunt to win the World Series.
