The Producers of the “Joy of Sox” film are producing a documentary on the Boston Red Sox and spirituality – www.thejoyofsoxmovie.com . They will be filming Red Sox fan stories in Hopkinton in a couple of weeks. They are looking for Red Sox fans who have quirky or spiritual stories about the Sox. In particular, they’re looking for fans to:
- Tell them what you do that you believe helps the Red Sox win
- Tell them why you think your prayers helped to win the World Series
- Tell them what you think you did to jinx a win
- Describe your most amazing Red Sox coincidence
- Confide your most embarrassing Red Sox superstition (wear the same socks or shirt for every game, eat only certain foods if the Sox are ahead, rally caps, etc.)
- Tell them if you believe you can affect the outcome of a game or the season
- Tell them if you believe that fans can affect a player or a game through praying, wishing, hoping, or willing
To be considered, fans need to forward a photo/headshot to firstname.lastname@example.org and tell us why we should include you in the film. If chosen, they will contact you with a time and location.
