Beat 360° 4/16/08

Hey Bloggers!

It's time for tonight's ‘Beat 360°.’

Everyday we post a picture – and you provide the caption. Our staff will get in on the action too.

Tune in every night at 10p ET to see if you are our favorite! Can you Beat 360°?

Here is today’s “Beat 360°” pic of the day: Here we have an elephant standing on its hind legs as it shoots a ball during a basketball performance for foreign tourists last year at Mae Taman Elephant Park in Chiang Mai province, northern Thailand.

Beat 360°



Have fun with it.

Make sure to include your name, city, state (or country) so we can post your comment.
