A hockey move, usually performed by forwards trying to play defence. The technique involves raising one leg while the opposing player takes a shot from the point, instead of doing what you are paid to do, which is to block the shot.
The end result is usually a deflection or screening the goalie, thus causing a goal.
Most Swedish and Finnish wingers are very adept at the flamingo move.

Trevor Linden has never used the flamingo move in is life

A girl at a club with her friends not dancing with any guys usually rounded up in a circle and when you ask for a dance they make up a ridiculous excuse not to dance with you.
Brian: bro go dance with that girl
Peter: nah she's a flamingo

Let's start with classifing the Giant Flamingo. These half human, half flamingo beasts are all over the place, and you could NEVER know!!! Yet they are incredibly easy to spot. Here are the characteristics of one.

1.) GIANT NOSE! This is the first thing you will come across on.
2.) Black or brown hair that falls nearly eye-level to shoulders Rarely is it past their shoulders.
3.) Extremely tight jeans. These animals naturally have thin legs, but the tightness of their jeans makes them even more thin.
4.) Youth Small t-shirts. Usually are band t-shirts, but can be also a shirt the animal wore when he was younger.
5.) These animals are ALWAYS male. How they reproduce is from female humans. And in every one-in-a-thousands births, two regular humans can produce a Giant Flamingo. Some Giant Flamingos may have regular children with their mates, but that child is at a risk to reproducing another flamingo.
6.) Sometimes these animals like to show off their skillz. This includes skateboarding and BMXing.
7.) These animals are mean and rude. Occasionally, if you get on their good side, they will be nice.
"OH MY GOD!! Becca, look! IT'S A FLAMINGO!"
