I’m Not That Jonathan Goff

I recently noticed that I was getting lots of web traffic from a url that I was unfamiliar with, www.patsfans.com. Being curious I decided to check it out. Apparently there’s been a bit of a case of mistaken identity here, so I figure I ought to give a clarifier:

  • I’m not Jonathan T Goff, the 6’4″ 235lb linebacker who just signed with some NFL team (the Patriots?). I wish I was in that good of shape. I do enjoy playing football, but I don’t think any of you would enjoy watching me play.
  • I’m not Jonathan P Goff, the condensed matter physicist from Liverpool, England. I wish I was that smart.
  • I’m not Jonathan D Goff, the sometimes political writer. I actually know Jonathan D (old friends from Utah, he used to cash my checks for me when I was 16 and didn’t have a drivers license), but I’m nowhere near as talented at dry wit.
  • I’m not Jonathan S Goff (whose curly-haired smiley face occasionally shows up on this blog). I wish I was that cute and carefree.
  • I am Jonathan A Goff, 27 year old rocket propulsion engineer of Tehachapi, CA, sometimes space commentator, and father of three.

Hope that clarifies things.

    Father of 3??? 🙂

    It actually isn’t a typo. I don’t mention it much these days, but our first son, Jarom Matthew Goff was born 4 1/2 months premature (due to a previously unknown medical condition Tiff has) on January 5th 2004. We only had him for a few minutes, but I still count him.

    No worries though, there’s probably no way you would’ve known, because as I said, I don’t mention him too often on the blog.

    Oh…I am sorry.

    My first thought was that you were going to add another addition! 🙂

    I was going to celebrate with you! 🙂

    Hey brother mine, it is nice of you to clarify who you are. Just in case I happened to forget. I too count all three of my “J” nephews, though I wouldn’t be averse to celebrating a new addition someday…hint hint

    No PRESSURE there for either you or Tiffany!

    Family love!
