Beat 360° 4/22/08

Hey Bloggers!

With all this heat from campaign trail, I thought you could cool off with a little ‘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 see Flocke, the three-month old polar bear cub playing with a TV camera during the first week of her public appearance at the Nuremberg Zoo in Nuremberg, Germany.

Beat 360°


Have fun with it.

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

– David Reisner, 360° Digital Producer

    I empathize with my brothers in Chicago; we Cubs always seem to shrink from sight just when our chance for Stardom is so close!

    Anderson Cooper reports in Nuremberg Zoo:

    Anderson: "How did you wind up here, Flocke"
    Flocke:"Well Anderson, I drank one coca-cola without asking permission"

    "Nuremberg Zoo in Nuremberg, home of the coca-cola rejects".

    And I just want to make it clear, I don’t take any money from PACs or special “cola” interest groups. It is only day 90 or so but I started fighting to stop global warming on day one!
