Chesapeake the Dolphin randomly selected a soccer ball with the name "Soares" on it Wednesday afternoon at Baltimore's National Aquarium as the mammal made a prediction for the top pick -- University of California defender A.J. Soares -- in Thursday's 2011 Major League Soccer SuperDraft. Six top prospects kicked balls into the aquarium, and the dolphin came back with Soares. The draft will start at noon Thursday, and the first round will be broadcast live on ESPN2, with live streaming of Rounds 2 and 3 on www.MLSsoccer.com.
