Obama in Chicago: basketball at University of Chicago. UPDATED

WASHINGTON—In Chicago, President Obama started Saturday by motorcading from his home at 5046 S. Greenwood to the University of Chicago Lab School on 58th Street and Kenwood to play basketball.

Obama left home at 8:49 a.m. Chicago time. He was wearing a black jacket and a White Sox cap.

His daughters, Malia and Sasha attended Lab school before moving to Washington.

Update 1

Obama left the Lab School at 10:55 a.m., waving to reporters before

getting into an SUV in the motorcade. He was home by 11:03 a.m. Chicago time.

A White House staffer told me Thursday there were no plans for Obama to attend a Blackhawks game while in Chicago and on Saturday morning nothing had changed. According to the pool report: A note from (White House spokesman) Bill Burton, to allay apparent confusion out there: While the President is rooting for the Blackhawks against the Flyers, he has no plans to attend the game this evening.”
