Poll Question: World Cup Watching
This year’s World Cup — the planet’s biggest spectator sport — is taking place in Russia. That means that prime-time matches can be live-streamed during prime office hours here in the United States.
That’s great for soccer fans. And it’s especially great for fans of England, France, Croatia and Belgium, the countries that made it to the final four of the tournament. But some supervisors might not appreciate the focus on athletics during business hours.
Of course, not everyone cares about soccer. But since the World Cup comes and goes only once every four years, this week’s poll question asks: “Are your colleagues distracted at work by the World Cup?”

McCoy’s names new store managers
Jason Kieth and Tyler Montgomery set to helm stores in Rosenberg and Orange, Texas.
McCoy’s Building Supply has appointed Jason Kieth as store manager of its Rosenberg, Texas and Tyler Montgomery as manager of the pro dealer’s location in Orange.
Kieth has been with McCoy’s for 11 years serving in a variety of roles including commercial sales, window technician, and assistant manager where his excellent customer service skills and dedication to serving the Born-to-Build customer were continually evident, the company said. Most recently, Kieth was assistant manager of McCoy’s newest store in Alvin, Texas, before taking the helm in Rosenberg.
“I’m looking forward to meeting the folks in our market. Our store has a friendly atmosphere and we’re ready to take care of our customers building supply needs with a smile,” he says.
Montgomery began his career with McCoy’s 5 years ago working in a variety of roles, eventually joining the company’s Management Development Program and being promoted to assistant manager. Most recently, he served as assistant manager of the company’s Lufkin, Texas store and spent time at the Orange store last year providing coverage while recovering after Hurricane Harvey.
“I’m so excited to work with this crew in the Orange community. We’re ready to go above and beyond to make sure we meet and exceed the needs of our customers,” said Montgomery.
McCoy’s Building Supply serves builders, contractors, ranchers, and serious do-it-yourselfers in Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Mississippi, and New Mexico with 87 locations and 2 millwork facilities.
