At my 30th birthday, I ate a ton of chicken wings. It was awesome. At my wife’s 30th birthday, we rented out the 7th Street Entry and did karaoke with about 100 friends on the stage. That was even more awesome.
But Adrian Peterson? He rode a camel. Can’t decide if it’s awesome or not, but it’s … something?
That moment when your client comes into his 30th birthday party on a camel! Sultan Style! #30AllDay #janedeux #arabiannights #adrianpeterson #janedeuxevents #houstoneventplanners

B. Todd Jones, formerly U.S. attorney for Minnesota, had a checkered two years with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives before resigning last week amid rumors he was taking a job with the NFL.
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said today Jones would join the league as Special Counsel for Conduct.
Jones graduated from Macalester in 1979 and the University of Minnesota Law School in 1983. A native of Cincinnati, he served as a judge advocate in the Marines after he passed the bar.
Jones’ short history with ATF can be seen here and here.
Lisa Friel, who had been working with the league on discipline issues, will be named NFL special counsel for investigations.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported Goodell decided to split the duties of an NFL conduct officer between Jones and Friel.
