It reads: “The closer we get to the Mumford and Sons concert in Troy, the more I think I know how the French must have felt as the Nazi forces were marching across Europe and into Paris.
“An army of darkness has aligned against the city of Troy. These people are going to roll into our quiet little town and there is seemingly nothingwe can do about it. They are going to leave a path of destruction in their wake. I have no doubt there will be laws broken, morals destroyed, drug and alcohol paraphernalia left behind and a football stadium destroyed.”
