Mulligan

noun; zero derivation
An occurrence in frisbee in which a player on Team A is in his own end-zone and throws the frisbee down field. A player on Team B hits the frisbee mid-air, allowing it to be caught by another player on Team B, the frisbee having never left the end-zone, Unknown origin, but possibly the name of a player who first pulled this off or related to golf, where a mulligan indicates having screwed up big by hitting into a water trap or something (the idea being, the thrower screwed up big in getting blocked.
