Nutmegging



A nutmeg (or tunnel) is a technique used in association football, field hockey or basketball in which in which a player rolls or throws the ball through an opponent's legs. This can be done in order to pass to another player, to shoot on goal, or to carry on and retrieve it.   

The use of the word nutmeg to mean leg in Cockney rhyming slang has also been proposed.  

Maybe the best explanation is that when the nutmeg trade was most active, and nutmegs were expensive, dupe wooden nutmegs would be mixed in, so the unwary buyer was considered foolish and stupid.
