Pat Sajak, the host of "Wheel of Fortune," says he used to do tapings drunk back in the day.

Sajak says he and letter-turner Vanna White used to go take long dinner breaks and down up to six margaritas before coming back to do more shows. He admits he sometimes had trouble recognizing the alphabet. Sajak says alcohol no longer plays a part of his hosting routine.
