Is it because being the first foot forward, it gets covered in brown mud more than the trailing foot?

From Double-Tongued Dictionary:

Perhaps a calque from the German Schokoladenbein ‘favored leg’ (literally ‘chocolate leg’). A similar German word is Schokoladenseite ‘attractive side’ (literally ‘chocolate side’).

I'm ambidextrous in both feet at lights and haven't figured out what's best with starting gates except when my left knee is giving me the gyp.
