Pat Sajak admits that in the early days of "Wheel of Fortune" he and Vanna White would knock back a few during breaks.

He was asked on ESPN 2's "Dan Le Batard is Highly Questionable" whether he was ever intoxicated on the show. Sajak responded with a laugh, "Yes," People reported. "When I first started and was much younger and could tolerate those things. We had a different show then.

At the time, the show had a long break during tapings when he and White would go to a nearby Mexican restaurant for margaritas.

"Vanna and I would ... have two or three or six and then come and do the last shows and have trouble recognizing the alphabet," he said. "I had a great time. I have no idea if the shows were any good, but no one said anything, so I guess I did OK."
