ANTHONY DIXON VERSUS COWBELLS: A TALE OF SOCIAL MEDIA WARFARE

SOMEONE ON TWITTER IS GOING TO GET VICIOUSLY RETWEETED OVER THIS

Starkville, if you have never been there, is a charming college town of small stature and, um...an efficiently trim list of entertainment options. There aren't many dining options, and by that we mean it's a big deal that a Chick-Fil-A opened a while back. There isn't a whole lot of traffic, and by that we mean that a golf cart is a reasonable road transportation from campus into town.

There aren't that many options for nightlife, either, and by that we mean you pretty much have to go to the same three or four places in town for social beering. One of those is Cowbells, a campus bar not included on various traffic-whorin' lists of best campus bars, and the very institution that denied Anthony Dixon, Mississippi State alum and 49ers running back, entry on Saturday night following the Maroon and White spring game.

Dixon then tweeted or retweeted others no fewer than one hundred times between Saturday and this morning about a.) getting denied entry to Cowbells or b.) about how he was going to open his own bar in Starkville or c.) how unjust this all was. We stopped counting at one hundred, actually.

The besieged Cowbells did reply to Dixon:

And then this happened:

THIS IS EXACTLY LIKE TURNING AWAY JERRY RICE. Particularly the part where Jerry Rice has to go to Applebees instead, receives horrendous service, and then openly wonders if this is why Ole Miss is doing so well in recruiting. That same Applebees received this extremely thorough review from a Google user:

Someone please open another bar in Starkville, and then never, ever deny Anthony Dixon entry for any reason. Drag a table out to the street if you have to, or simply knock down a wall and pronounce your new impromptu patio open for drinking. Do it before someone gets killed on Twitter, or at least has to resort to going to Applebees again.
