You've heard his voice deliver weather forecasts.  In the near future you may hear Bill Meck announce a touchdown at Kroger Field. The LEX-18 weatherman was one of approximately 50 people who gathered tonight at John Cropp Stadium to show off their pipes in the hopes that one day they may become a P.A. announcer for UK Athletics.  There is no vacancy that needs to be filled immediately.  UK is using the tryout to find young talent to develop for the future. One of them could be 26-year old Adam Goodlett.  Dressed in a blue suit, he held nothing back. "I’m just a diehard Kentucky fan,” Goodlett told the Herald-Leader after his turn at the microphone. “If UK was in a spitting contest, I’d paint myself blue and sit in the front row.” Those who are still in contention will be notified Monday.  For more, check out the story from the Herald-Leader.
