MILWAUKEE -- An 82-year-old Milwaukee woman got a special visit from one of her favorite basketball teams. 
 
Rightie Pappenheim lives at Harwood Place Senior Care Facility and she loves the Harlem Globetrotters. On Monday, they paid her a special visit and put on a personal show.
 
"Pure stage magic. It was great fun to have them here," Pappenheim  said. "I loved to see the few things that they did in speaking to the crowd here at lunch." 
 
It has been on Rightie's bucket list to see the Globetrotters at the BMO Harris Bradley Center on New Year's Eve. In addition to the personal visit, she was invited to go this year's show.
 
Their 90th Anniversary World Tour show will take place at 1 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 31.
 
Earlier in the day, two Harlem Globetrotters members paid a visit to Miller Park and named Hank the Ballpark Pup their honorary mascot.
