Linsanity is not Jeremy Lin.
Linsanity is not a nickname, meme or trending topic.
Linsanity is something much bigger:
Linsanity is unexpected human triumph.
Linsanity is the dream we all have that talent is more important than systems, politics, connections or The so-called Man.
Linsanity is when the establishment is profoundly shaken.
Linsanity is when Spike Lee and a grandmother in Pasadena start tweeting about the same thing.
Linsanity is when something really human happens in a previously very fabricated set of circumstances.
Linsanity is being crazy enough to take the opportunity in front of you.
Linsanity is a state of defying pressure and creating a new set of wildly unexpected expectations.
Linsanity is a little piece of imagination that tickles us when it spontaneously becomes real.
Linsanity is stranger than fiction.
Linsanity would be a cheesy unbelievable Hollywood movie.
But since it’s real, it’s inspiring and extraordinary.
Linsanity is the intersection of hyperbole and truth.
Linsanity is hope personified.
I hope there is no cure for our case of Linsanity.
