Log in to Reply liason4real December 23, 2011 I remember reading several years ago that athletes who spend a lot of time on the road or working out at the gym love their soaps! Athletes first start watching soaps because of a loved one and it carries on once they become professionals in their field. Log in to Reply Suz4th December 23, 2011 It’s true about athletes. A lot of them love the soaps. Red Sox left fielder Jim Rice mentioned his “favorite soap opera The Young and the Restless” during his Hall of Fame acceptance speech!

Soaps transcend sex, age and socioeconomic status! Such a travesty that OLTL is being cancelled and AMC went by the wayside.
