When a dynasty reaches its climactic championship moment after 108 long and miserable years, the celebration is one for the ages. It rages on throughout the city from the last pitch to next season's first, and the hangover may never come for some who ride the wave of glory throughout the rest of their lives. "We finally won one!"

There will be no Cubs dynasty, as people are so quick to announce. Listen below and find out why.
You can hear The Ben Maller Show every weekday from 2-6 am est. on Fox Sports Radio.
