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.
