I hear this mindset all the time, and I have a hard time understanding it. Who cares if we can say we lost to the champs? No one will remember who they beat in the conference round years from now. When a team beats my team, I want nothing but the worst for them.

I remember those two consecutive years when the Phillies ousted the Dodgers from the playoffs, and I had friends say similar things, about rooting for the Phillies in the Series because at least the Dodgers could say they lost to the best team that year. Doesn't make sense in my mind. I wished all those Phillies death those two years, and still quite dislike them to this day.
