    I observe that,
    as the physics side of the OPERA-anomaly story is apparently unfolding,
    there can still be motivation for philosophy of science to analyze
    the six months of madness physicists spent chasing the dream of a new
    fundamental-physics revolution.
    I here mainly report data on studies of the OPERA anomaly
    that could be relevant for analyses from the
    perspective of phenomenology of philosophy of science.
    Most of what I report is an insider's perspective on
    the debate that evolved from the original announcement
    by the OPERA collaboration of evidence of superluminal neutrinos.
    I also sketch out, from a broader perspective,
    some of the objectives I view as achievable for
    the phenomenology of philosophy of science.
