Jeff Branigan tossed around the old pigskin with his son Jackson and nephew Logan on a sunny father's day at Harbor Island.
Like the Branigans, many families celebrated father's day with pizza and sports. A few minutes down the road from Harbor Island, Chris Difolco played a little one-on-one with his son Matthew at the Chatsworth Elementary school basketball court.
"I won one and he won one," said Difolco, of Dillon Rd. "But since it's father's day, I might let him win the tie-breaker."
This year, Jared Ochacher gave his father Perry a very special gift when he made the game-winning play in his youth baseball league's championship game at Pinebrook Field in New Rochelle, which went two extra innings.
The catcher for his Minors Division team, the Hawks, found out he won the Most Valuable Player award while walking along Chatsworth Ave with his parents and sister Julianne. Jared's coach texted his mother, who shouted, "You won the MVP."
When asked what their father's day plans were, Perry said, "We're going to be celebrating the championship."
Back at Harbor Island, Dan Griffin, of Mamaroneck took a stroll with his wife and son after going to the movies.
"We got some pizza and then saw a movie, 'Green Lantern'. It was a good family movie," said Griffin, looking over to his son.
Local businesses, like Vision of Tomorrow on Larchmont Ave, got into the Father's Day spirit, promoting Father's Day gift certificates for their spa services, which include relaxology, deep tissue, hot stone and Sweedish massages.
"We've had a few people come in and buy gift certificates," said Estee Fremont, a massage therapist at Vision Tomorrow. "A lot of people come in with stress, not just women."
