Michael (23 Red) Jordan Fesses Up To Being a Stupid Gambler

From Chicago Sun-Times:
Michael Jordan comes clean about his high-stakes gambling in a "60 Minutes" interview set to air Sunday, saying he crossed the line to the point of being "stupid" but was never a compulsive gambler.

"Yeah, I've gotten myself into situations where I would not walk away, and I've pushed the envelope," Jordan told CBS correspondent Ed Bradley in an interview taped in Chicago last month.

But things didn't get to the point where he was willing to risk his livelihood or his family, the former Bull said in one of his first major television interviews in years.

The CBS sit-down, scheduled to air at 6 p.m. Sunday, comes ahead of the release of Jordan's new book, Driven from Within.
