    * What comes to mind when you think of the word 'SHOWDOWN'?

    Hey everyone!

    This is probably the random post of the day, but I was always wondering how people associate the word 'showdown'.

    'Showdown', according to the merriam webster dictionary has the definition:

    1 : the placing of poker hands faceup on the table to determine the winner of a pot
    2 : a decisive confrontation or contest

    A simple google image search reveals an overwhelming number of 'western' results. But I am wondering what YOU would associate the word showdown with?

    Some examples I have found:

    1. Western Cowboy Showdown
    2. Poker Laydown/Showdown
    3. Music Band Showdown
    4. Snowboard/BMX Trick Showdown
    5. Bulls Fighting Showdown

    Feel free to add your own

    I think of showdown as a final battle, competition, and display.

    our college had a 'showdown' at annual festivals...the bands were allowed to play the rest of the night after regular programs ended.
