In honor of Olivia’s fifth birthday yesterday, the celebration of which we are still recovering from. Ain’t no party like a five-year-old birthday party, ’cause a five-year-old birthday party don’t quit.

    The Chase Clement shout-out was a bit off tempo. He’s already given up on the CFL after one day in camp:

    New QB calls it quits after just two practices

    Chase Clement’s pro career lasted all of two practices.

    The quarterback, who signed just last week after a standout career at Rice University, came to coaches yesterday morning to say he was quitting and going back to his hometown of Houston, Texas.

    “We’re going to give him the opportunity to go home and figure out what he wants to do next,” head coach Marcel Bellefeuille said.

    Clement will be registered with the league as retired, allowing the Ticats to retain his rights for the duration of his contract — reportedly two years plus an option — without having to use one of the team’s negotiation list spots.

    Clement wasn’t available for comment yesterday but his father Craig told the Rice Owls Examiner that his son didn’t enjoy the CFL game.

    “He did not feel that the Canadian style of football was something that he could be passionate about,” the elder Clement said.

    “So he prayed about it — was very diligent about that –we guided him through that effort just to make sure that he was making the right decision.”

    Clement’s father said his U.S.-based agent will continue to explore NFL options for his son.

    Quarterback coach Khari Jones said Clement may have been overwhelmed by the speed and skill of the players at this level.

    “You have to really want to do it and there’s nothing wrong if you don’t,” said Jones. I guess Clement figured out he didn’t want to.”
