To coincide with Father's Day, The Bee and modbee.com asked our readers to vote for their favorite father-son look-alikes. And the result was a surprise: We had a tie for first place.
The winning entries were from Modesto families. Richard Whatley submitted a photo of himself with his son Eric, and Jennifer Haro submitted a photo of Eddie and Ray. Neither family could be reached for comment Saturday.
But on Friday, we caught up with the father and son who ultimately finished third in the voting, Bryan and Rowdy Sprouse of Delhi. They were nominated by Bryan's wife, Sharrie.
The winners will receive portrait sittings with a photographer in The Modesto Bee studio.
Never miss a local story.
While the father-son contest has concluded, a new one is under way to find an act to perform at the Stanislaus County Fair.
