Fulfilling The Prophecy Of The Blood God, Cal Has Gotten Back In This

Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

The depths to which Cal sunk in order to get back in this have finally been revealed.

INT. HP PAVILLION LOCKER ROOM - LATE NIGHT

March 23, 2013. California Golden Bears head coach Mike Montgomery paces back and forth, rubbing his head and sighing deeply.

He is alone. Everyone has gone home following Cal's NCAA Tournament loss to Syracuse. Only a few dim lights remain on.

MONTGOMERY
(sotto)
Why? Why, Dark Lord…why? Please...

Suddenly, a DARKNESS takes shape from across the room. A disembodied voice booms from within. This is the blood god, LA MAGRA.

LA MAGRA
Who dares to summon me?

Mike Montgomery kneels before the shape.

MONTGOMERY
It is I, dark lord. Coach Montgomery of the Cal Bears. I prayed to you to help us defeat that…that…Boeheim. And his Orange scum. And we tried. We tried so hard. We kept getting back into it, over and over again. And yet…it was not enough. Why?

LA MAGRA
Because you lack sacrifice, pawn.

Montgomery hesitates. Then...

MONTGOMERY
Of course! What must I do? I shall pay any cost. What do you require? Shall I sacrifice a student-manager? Do I need to buy Boeheim's 2-3 zone defense DVD?

La Magra seems to chuckle.

LA MAGRA
The soul of Number Five will awaken the Blood God.

MONTGOMERY
The prophecy? I thought that was made up.

LA MAGRA
It is very real. But it requires faith and sacrifice. But you will need help if you want a second chance. You will need to find He Whose Blood Is A Mixture Of Dishwater & Prego Marinara Sauce.

MONTGOMERY
Pitino? He's too big. I can't reach him anymore.

LA MAGRA
There is another...

Montgomery considers for a beat. Then...

MONTGOMERY
His son!

LA MAGRA
Yesssss….you will tell He Whose Walks Behind The Sleeze what you require and he will help you.

MONTGOMERY
Pitino's son will help me get another chance at Boeheim and his team?

LA MAGRA
So is it to pass.

MONTGOMERY
Does it have to be him?

LA MAGRA
What do you mean?

MONTGOMERY
I don't know, he's so…there's just something about him that creeps me out. I can't totally put my finger on it.

LA MAGRA
You will obey me. Or you will walk eternity without vengeance.

MONTGOMERY
Okay. But…you said something about sacrifice.

LA MAGRA
The soul of Number Five will awaken the Blood God.

MONTGOMERY
Who is Number Five? Are you going to spill his blood?

LA MAGRA
I am going to do nothing. You will see...

MONTGOMERY
So be it, my dark lord.

LA MAGRA
Peace out, brah.

Thank you, dark lord…thank you.
