Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder's campaign slogan was "one tough nerd," and if you saw what nearly happened to him at a Tuesday night basketball game, you'd understand why.

The Republican was attending a game between the Michigan Wolverines and the North Carolina State Wolfpack in Ann Arbor, and nearly took a shoe to his face from Michigan freshman Mitch McGary.

Detroit Free Press photographer Julian H. Gonzalez captured the priceless reaction of the governor and his wife, Sue:

Snyder is a Michigan alumnus and holds basketball season tickets, according to the Associated Press.
