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!

    Pic 3: Gah... I've been blinded by the truth, the way and the light; I've dropped the ball
    Pic4: Well, I had my chance I guess. That's alright though... looks like the Youth vote is gonna walk away with this one anyways. Sorry John. I'm still invited to your barbeque right?

    Afraid to admit to a group of school children he is George Bush, the President tries to convince them he is LeBron James until the American foreign exchange student blows his cover.

    Number 1 – Invade and seize possession,

    Number 2 – Turn it upside down into chaos,

    Number 3 – Lose complete control,

    Number 4 – Acknowledge Number 1 was the wrong thing to do!
