Bear with me here ok?! 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: Children from local schools in the Paddington area of London celebrate Paddington Bear's birthday with the bear himself on yesterday in London, England. Paddington Bear's birthday is celebrated on the 50th anniversary of the first of Michael Bond's Paddington Bear books being published.
Here's one to get you started:
Paddington Bear feels the backlash from today’s court ruling; giving citizens of Washington D.C. “the right to ‘bear’ arms.”
Have fun with it.
Make sure to include your name, city, state (or country) so we can post your comment.

When you win ‘Beat 360°’ not only do you get on-air prime-time name recognition (complete with bragging rights over all your friends, family, and jealous competitors), but you get a “I Won the Beat 360° Challenge” T-shirt!
Good luck to all!
