Mrs. Weasel Emerges From The Shadows

My divine consort Mrs. Weasel had long grumbled that given the nomenclature deployed on this blog she appears only as a mere apendage of me; "Weasel" with a "Mrs." added. We have toyed with the idea of holding a contest among you all, as in "Provide a Better Psuedonym For Mrs. Weasel, Win a Prize" but last night NESN's post game baseball coverage provided her with the inspiration to create a monkier for herself.

Ladies and gentlemen, I am very proud to present, president of the Dennis Eckersley Fan Club, Denise Eckersley!

Say what you like about the Eck, you can't deny he's had a consistent look:

PS: Further research after this piece was originally posted reveals that the Eck's first wife was actually called "Denise". As ESPN notes:
"That same day, March 30, Eckersley's first wife, Denise, told him she wanted a divorce; she had become romantically involved with Eckersley's Cleveland teammate Rick Manning. The two later married."

And to make things even stranger, the following seemingly coincidental question was asked in the British House of Commons on January 18, 2001:
"Denise Eckersley:
Mr. Hilary Benn: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department when he expects to reach a decision on the West Yorkshire Coroner's request for an order to be issued to allow an inquest to be held into the death of Denise Eckersley. [146103]

Mr. Boateng: An order was issued on 10 January."

Weirder and weirder.

I don't know who this guy is but he looks like some kind of character in a 70's police drama.

A pity the contest is not on because I had a great name.

Weaselette sounds like a cheap 60's automotive upholstery option
