15th Century Russian Fable

I had begun to question their loyalty. Michal was leading them astray, telling them how the pack did not need me as their master. So I had their heads removed and attached them to their necks with scarves of red. "Desert me, and the scarf will vanish" I told them. "Your blood will turn the snow red, and I will know where you have died"

NBA Finals, Pre-game Peptalk

Phil Jackson to Michael Jordan: "For the strength of the pack is the wolf, and the strength of the wolf is the pack"

Fleet Foxes, White Winter Hymnal

I was following the pack
all swallowed in their coats
with scarves of red tied ’round their throats
to keep their little heads from fallin’ in the snow
And I turned ’round and there you go
And, Michael, you would fall
and turn the white snow red as strawberries
in the summertime
