I hate to think of all the years I wasted time watching Y&R, but at least I broke that habit a very long time ago. lol Y&R follows the local news that I have on most days and if I'm not paying attention, when Y&R comes on, I can't change it fast enough. BUT with all that said, the bits I've been seeing of EB/Victor...good Lord he mumbles! Yes, he always has, but I don't tolerate it like I did. In fact, we call him "Mumbly Pegs" around here and we imitate him by using our graveliest, lowest possible sound and making unintelligible grunts.
