Marcus Pollard carries sheep on 'Amazing Race'

Posted by Will Brinson

Random: I was watching 30 Rock's re-runs on Comedy Central last night and they busted out the one where Tina Fey reports Fred Armisen for being a terrorist, even though he's just in America trying out for The Amazing Race.

Somewhat relevant to that entirely random thought: former NFL tight end Marcus Pollard is a current contestant on the show aired by the mothership. And, honestly, he's been a pretty entertaining competitor thus far.

In the most recent edition of the show, Pollard and his wife end up in a pair of "Detour" challenges in Indonesia: one called Rice Field, where they have to plant rice seedlings in a muddy field, and another called Grass Fed, where they have to wrangle (or, in Marcus' case, carry) sheep into a pen.

On the bright side, all of it looks infinitely more awesome than having to block for Curtis Painter.

Clark thinks Pollard has a good chance on race

Posted by Josh Katzowitz

I don’t know how this news slipped by me, considering I cover the NFL, work for CBS and watch most seasons of the Amazing Race, but former Colts tight end Marcus Pollard and his wife, Amani, are a team on the newest season of the Amazing Race (starting Sept. 25 at 8 p.m. ET/7 CT).

CBS went to find current Colts tight end Dallas Clark to see what nice things he could say about his former teammate. After Clark goes through Pollard’s attributes (compassionate?!?), the interviewer asks how advantageous Pollard’s competitiveness will be on the reality show.

“Oh yeah,” Clark said, “everyone else is in trouble.”
