WASHINGTON (AP) – It’s a busy Saturday for Barack Obama. First he named a new ambassador to China and then he switched from being president to being a soccer dad.

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. After soccer, Obama went golfing.

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