Missing Game For Super Bowl Parties

One result of trying to attend a bunch of different Super Bowl parties is that you miss a lot of the game. But that puts you in good company, because a fair percentage of the partygoers were not watching anyway. Well, not during the early going at least. Photographer Jesse Tinsley and I arrived at our first stop Sunday afternoon, the South Hill home of hydrologist Rick Noll and accountant Judy Lungren, as Hawaiian shirt-clad Rick kept loose tabs on a 2-gallon vat of chili. Kickoff was still a couple of hours away, but their guests were just about to start arriving. A front porch sign on an almost life-size cutout of John Wayne, adorned for this occasion in an added-on red skirt, instructed guests to head around to the back door.
