Is Watching the Leafs "Masochism with Commercials"?

8

No, it's masochism with commercials and Pierre McGuire, which is to say it's masochism with commercials and more masochism. Bill Simmons (I know) identifies the Leafs as #7 on a list of sports teams eligible to inflict a "Level 1" (epic) loss upon their fanbase. I think he underestimates the significance of '93 and misses the point that injury was added to indignity for us when the Habs took that Cup. In these trying times, with guys like DGB "taking a break" from the team, it's a particularly apposite reflection on why we put ourselves through this misery.
