What do flamingos have to do with this?
The two "dueling flamingos" in this competition were the two battling for the last T-shirt, namely `/anick Champoux and Michael Wrenn. I was looking for a lively title for this article and got the idea from Michael's comment, quoted in the article, which was made in response to `/anick overtaking him on the leaderboard yet again:
I went out to get some dinner and returned to check on my solid 20th Place (securing a prized Fonality/trixbox T-shirt) ... when what to my wondering eyes should appear, but \'anick the Canuck who was now TWO STROKES CLEAR! I CURSEd and I SHOUTed and I called him some names| That Bastr/a//d! That foo|bird! That Flamingo again!!! I'll catch him! I'll pass him! I'll beat him this time! I'll punk him! I'll twizzle and addle his brain!
I guess it's hard to relate to these emotions unless you've actually played in one of these competitions and experienced first hand the bizarre experience of finding yourself cursing and swearing at total strangers from all over the world for passing you on the leaderboard. :-)
