Sam Bradford (Heisman Trophy winner 2008) Home Address

I would like to write a personal letter to Sam Bradford. I know that I can send a letter either to the University of Oklahoma or to the St. Louis Rams to have these two places refer my letter to Sam. There's no guarantee my letter will be forwarded. If anyone out there has an address where I can reach Sam, I would be most appreciative. I requested the same information for Heisman winner Mike Rozier and someone came through for me.   Joe Galiardi, author, Hooked on…

Morgan Freeman

I collect autographed golf balls as a hobby. I would like to get movie actor Morgan Freeman's autograph on a golf ball, but need his home address. I know that Morgan is an avid golfer. Even if someone knows where Morgan golfs, would help me. Appreciate any help I can get from Autograph Magazine subscribers.  Joe Galiardi, author, Hooked on Autographs.

Standing next to me was a lady with her 5-year-old son who was there for the same purpose -- to obtain autographs on golf balls. When I got there, the little boy had two signed balls.
