President's Saturday Soccer Break

Even the leader of the free world needs the occasional Saturday afternoon off. After naming Utah Governor and Republican John Huntsman ambassador to China, President Obama ditched the White House to attend two soccer matches, where daughters Malia and Sasha were playing in two separate games. Wearing a Chicago White Sox jacket, the president attended first 7-year-old Sasha's game, then 10-year-old Malia's. At one point, when, Sasha's team scored, the president was witnessed cheering "go... go... go... GOAL!" After the soccer matches, he retired to the golf course.
