"Pferd obviously has a difficult time reading posters because it specifically states the "sponsors" of this event....Citizens Bank, Cox communications, and many others.... Pferd hate is rampant on Patch so pay no mind. Pferd is just a hateful loser. Pay no mind to Pferd. Pferd knows nothing of what Pferd speaks.
