Ezekiel Elliott is pretty darn good at football, and if keeps up the pace he set during last season's run to the national championship, he could soon be playing professionally.
But the Ohio State running back apparently has some other business plans in the works.
Elliott applied for five trademarks this month, according to an AP report, and a couple of them are downright hilarious.
Elliott applied for trademarks to use of his nicknames "Zeke" and "Eze" on apparel. But he also applied for two additional phrases to be used on apparel: "hero in a half shirt" and "in crop top we trust." Both are references to his personal style displayed last season, when he would roll the bottom of his jersey up under his shoulder pads, exposing his admittedly impressive abdominal muscles. The NCAA banned him and everyone else from doing that this season.
But the best of the five trademarks was a restaurant name: Zeke's Crop Top Bar and Grill.
Zeke's Crop Top Bar and Grill!
That is amazing, a restaurant where every football fan should want to eat.
Hopefully Elliott has a long and successful football career. And hopefully Zeke's Crop Top Bar and Grill opens as soon as possible. It would become the No. 1 culinary destination in Columbus.
