Beat 360° 6/16/08

Hey Bloggers!

Get up to the free-throw line, cause it's time for '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 the 'Beat 360°' pic of the day: Its a 4-in-1 contest!!! Unheard of!

Here we see US president George W. Bush plays basketball with members of the PeacePlayers international Basketball Group at Loughview integrated primary school, as he ends his visit to Belfast, Northern Ireland. (PeacePlayers International-Northern Ireland (PPI-NI) uses the game of basketball to address sectarianism and foster mutual respect and tolerance by enabling Catholic and Protestant children ages 10-14 to play the game together. Basketball, unlike traditional sports in Northern Ireland, is not affiliated with either community.)

Beat 360°

Have fun with it.

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

UPDATE: Check out our Beat 360° winners
Congratulations!

    George Bush's spin on the economy; he tried to spin it but it just fell down. It just goes to show you how George Bush is not smarter than a 5th grader.

    George Bush explores post-presidential hobby options and decides that basketball won't be one of them.

    If only he'd realized that basketball was a better avenue for fostering mutual respect and tolerance than war is....

    President Bush finds out there is as much air in a basketball as there is in his head.

    In West Wing Washington war was waged
    In the White House is where I spend most of my days
    Shellin' out taxes, enactin' my rule
    And shootin' some b-ball - think I just got "schooled."

    She knew she had a win when within the first five minutes of play, President Bush had forgotten the instructions.

    Playing basketball doesn't send the same message as playing golf AT ALL.

    After 8 years in office, President Bush still hasn't learned to play well with others.

    Even a game of Basketball is confusing and difficult for George Bush.

    Pres. Bush suggests that the issue of Irish reunification be decided by a friendly game of basketball, since at least in basketball there is no problem with dangling chad.

    1- "What you talkin bout Willis?

    2- George is looking into his crystal ball again for more advice on foreign affairs.

    3- Struggling to get the holy water out of his ear.

    If George Bush is confused about what to do with a ball, don't expect him to know what to do as the president of America.

    President Bush lost at "Horse" to the girl, because he forgot there was an "e" at the end of "horse". Dick Cheney defended the President by claiming he was just making up for Dan Quayle.
