What is the meaning of the word “Flare”? Why is it here?
Is the tournament going to flare up like a grease fire in a dirty kitchen?
Is it going to flare out like a pair of bell bottom pants from the ’60s?
Is this an emergency flare seeking help from a competent graphic artist?
Do they really mean “Flair” as in stylish or chic?
