Before I provide this update, I just want to thank Al Gore for inspiring me to blog, making me the 100th person this evening to thank Gore for providing inspiration...
Evan Grant has an update on the Michael Young contract talks. He says that progress has been made, but the major sticking point is how the deferred payments on the contract will be paid out.
This is sort of a strange sticking point, and is generally not the sort of thing that blows contracts up.
Grant quotes Dan Lozano, Young's agent, as saying that they are trying to work through 2 or 3 major issues. I still tend to believe that they'll get a deal done in the next few days.
