Obama traded a business suit for jeans and a Chicago White Sox jacket before shuttling around Washington to see daughters Malia and Sasha play in separate soccer games.

Obama cheered and clapped along the sidelines at 7-year-old Sasha's game with two Chicago friends. At one point, after Sasha's team scored, the president excitedly shouted "go ... go ... go ... goal."

Obama then moved on to 10-year-old daughter Malia's soccer match.

Earlier Saturday morning, Obama introduced Utah's Republican Gov. Jon Huntsman as his choice for U.S. ambassador to China.
