"We can't comment on that at this time," says Harry Zlockower, a spokesman for Sports Properties Acquisition Corp. Very well. SPAC appears to be an amorphous enterprise, and with all the other stuff that Kemp had going on -- unrelated business interests, political causes, cancer treatment, to name three -- it seems unlikely that he was deeply involved in negotiations.
No question this has been a bizarre week. Mr. Kemp's passing definitely clouds the picture, and only time will tell which direction this potential deal now heads.
