James Vandenberg Goes Bear Hunting

Iowa quarterback James Vandenberg and wide receiver Nick Nielsen walk through a Canadian forest on a bear hunt.

Vandenberg_icon_medium This is the best idea we've ever had, Nick!
Nielsen_icon_medium You're right, James.  This is awesome.
Vandenberg_icon_medium Just two guys in Canada hunting bears.
Nielsen_icon_medium Not a care in the world.
Vandenberg_icon_medium Not another person for mi--
Iconokeefe_medium Hey guys!
Vandenberg_icon_medium Hey, um...Coach O'Keefe?
Nielsen_icon_medium What are you doing here?
Iconokeefe_medium Well, I heard about your hunting trip and thought I'd join you!
Vandenberg_icon_medium You thought you would join us...on a bear hunt?
Iconokeefe_medium Yeah, I love bear hunting.
Nielsen_icon_medium I didn't know you'd hunted bears before, Coach.
Iconokeefe_medium Oh, I've dabbled here and there.
Vandenberg_icon_medium Well, I suppose you can join us.
