ESPN.com: Artest admits drinking, blasts ref

Ron Artest, the often-controversial Los Angeles Lakers’ forward, told a magazine interviewer he used to drink alcohol at halftime of NBA games.

“I used to drink Hennessy … at halftime,” Artest said in an interview with The Sporting News, which is publishing the story in its Dec. 7 issue. “I [kept it] in my locker. I’d just walk to the liquor store and get it.”

ESPN.com: Woods: ‘I have let my family down’

ESPN.com: Woods: ‘I have let my family down’

“I have let my family down and I regret those transgressions with all of my heart,” Woods said on his Web site. “I have not been true to my values and the behavior my family deserves.
