Ed Larson, the Columbus man who held the distinction of turning 100 on “12/12/12” last month, continues to enjoy celebrity status. The Minnesota Vikings arranged for Larson and some family members to get royal treatment for the Dec. 30 regular season finale against the Green Bay Packers.
The Vikings picked the Larson group up in a limo and provided field-level seats for the game. Those accompanying Larson said they had never seen him smile so much. Ed even got to meet a Vikings cheerleader and team President Mark Wilf.
