“The Young and the Restless” is no stranger to having sports stars visit Genoa City (Seattle Seahawk Superbowl champ Michael Robinson appeared earlier this year), but the next sports/soap opera crossover the sudser is planning has a bit of a twist: Instead of an athlete appearing on the show, it’ll be an athlete’s mother!

Good news, sports fans: “The Young and the Restless” is scoring another appearance by Seattle Seahawks Super Bowl Champion Michael Robinson!

Being on the winning team during this year’s Super Bowl was a dream come true for Seattle Seahawk’s fullback Michael Robinson, but the true touchdown for the Virginia native was being asked to film a scene for CBS’s “The Young and the Restless” — a soap opera he recently admitted is his guilty viewing pleasure! Soap Opera Network took part in a call with the sports star where he discussed his love of the show, how the gig came about and a very interesting conversation had had with legend Eric Braeden (Victor Newman). Read on for the detailed play-by-play!

On Thursday, March 13, Michael Robinson, fullback of the Super Bowl XLVIII champion Seattle Seahawks, will make his acting debut on CBS' "The Young and the Restless," the network announced today.
