I received a call yesterday from John Sandate, one of the drummers I mentioned and the co-host of “What the Flock” podcast. John called me because he wanted to give me a Black Army scarf. We met up shortly before the L.A. Galaxy/Portland Timbers game yesterday in a 7/11 parking lot next to the stadium. John opened his trunk and had a scarf for not only me, but for our photographer Dan as well. While we were leaving to go to the game, a panhandler on a bike came up to John, who had just gotten into his white 2008 Honda Accord EX-L. John got out and handed the man some money. Black Army 1850: class acts all around.
