President Takes in Daughter's Basketball Game

President Barack Obama went out for a little weekend basketball -- as a spectator.

The president and first lady Michelle Obama spent Saturday morning watching their 8-year-old daughter, Sasha, play in a basketball game at a community center in Chevy Chase, Md. Imagine the pressure on the coach!

The president is a big basketball fan and sometimes plays hoops himself on the weekends.

He also likes to get out of the White House when he can because his job "is a little confining," as he told an audience in Ohio on Friday.

On Sunday, the president spent about 90 minutes shooting hoops with Sasha and 11-year-old Malia at the Interior Department a few blocks from the White House.
