This brain represents Charlie Gaines' nickname, "Brain". He got this name from his friends because he is the best fantasy football coach in the U.S.A. Also, he uses his brain as an advantage in his Pop Warner league by figuring out the other team's play and changing his team's play. He helps an NFL team by telling the owner to draft new players.
This represents the NFL team that Charlie helps, the L.A. Bulldogs. They used to be a horrible team with horrible players. Charlie helps them go to their first ever playoffs and beat the Seattle Sea hawks to go to the Super Bowl. He tells the owner to sign Tom Pinkett, a benched quarter back, and Jack Sutton, a line backer who retired.
This cardinal represents Charlie's Pop Warner team, the Culver City Cardinals. His coach calls him an assistant coach because Charlie helps his team a lot .He recognizes the other teams play, so he tells a friend to do a different play and he ends up intercepting the other team's quarterback. The Cardinals win the championships all because Charlie forced a fumble and recovered it for a touchdown.
Charlie and his friend, Anna, make a radio show called "The Charlie Show" where he gives fantasy tips and just talks about football. His show becomes a hit. Charlie gets famous because of his show and he gets on T.V. A lot of people talk about him.
From his computer, Charlie plays fantasy football. He wins all his leagues except one. The team he is loosing to is called " Dream Team." He soon finds out that "Dream Team" is really Anna and her grandpa, the owner of the L.A Bulldogs. Charlie stays stunned for a very long time.
