Women across America are glued to their TV sets watching the Casey Anthony trial, leaving a lot of men feeling left out. The spouses of these trial obsessed ladies are referring to themselves at “Anthony Trial Widows.”
Husbands, boyfriends and lovers are complaining that they can’t even get their partner’s attention during the trial day, especially during the testimony of key witnesses.
My boyfriend showed me this transaction between him and his friend, Moe.
Pretty funny if you ask me. I had no idea that so many men were being affected but it’s true.
The sad fact is that many men have suddenly been left to fend for themselves during the long trial day. Making their own lunches… brewing their own coffee… asking questions that are left unanswered or unheard because their partners are so engrossed in the Casey Anthony trial.
Their females partners sit glued to the television all day long… and for good reason. This is one hell of a trial. Casey is so clearly guilty, and her defense attorney is left trying to convince the jury that there is some form of reasonable doubt. He tries everything he can to convince the jury and the world that experts don’t know what they are talking about. Between you and me, he’s not doing a very good job of it.
All that most of us can do is sit here and watch… watch and wonder if this horrible woman is literally going to get away with murder. It’s more interesting than a soap because the stakes are real… a little girl has been murdered by the one person who was supposed to keep her safe from harm… her mother. A mother whose defense is built on lies and more lies. Casey Anthony has turned and blamed this horrible crime on her own family… her father… one of the few people who continued to support her even when everyone else in the entire world was against her. For this unconditional love and support her father has been accused of rape and murder.
The true crime obsession seems to infect more women then men. I don’t know the psychology of it all… I’d love to find out though… all I know is that I’m one of those obsessed with this case and this trial. I have been from the start, when I first heard Caylee was missing on the Nancy Grace show and I plan to see this thing through to the end. This IS my Superbowl and I’m not going to miss it.
