In celebration of the NFL’s first Sunday games of the season, Google has released a cute little animation for its daily Google Doodle.

The cartoon features a lowercase g in a bedroom decked out in posters splashed with uppercase Gs. Laying on its stomach, the small g dreams of running towards the end zone, making a spectacular catch, and throwing down the football in celebration. Crowds shaped as o’s raise the little superstar up as he cheers with a trophy, bringing a huge grin to the little guy’s face.

“Hey there, I’m the the little g,” text reads. “This year, I’m gonna be a football star!”

A click on the link leads to a scoreboard and schedule of games.
