The Blind Leading The Blind

This afternoon as I was wandering to Chipotle for lunch a saying came to my head. “It’s like the blind leading the blind”. I use this saying pretty often, usually when talking to other single girlfriends about dating (because really, none of us have gotten it right at this point and yet we still insist on conferencing on every minute detail).

The reason it popped into my head this afternoon? While crossing 23rd Street at 6th Avenue, what do I see? Two elderly blind women, arms linked, their other hands each holding those walking-stick-thingies, leading each other across the street.

A HUGE part of me wishes I had had a camera phone. But then again it probably would have been cruel to take a pic of that.

I’m sure you’ve heard about this alraedy, but it’s nice to have proof Yankee’s fans are idiots. hehe

Comment by Chief Slacker

YEah I saw that. But now only was the fan dumb, so was SiaS:

“”That was the only exciting thing that happened today,” Yankees owner George Steinbrenner said after Chicago’s 2-1 victory.”

Um, so you’re saying that it’s exciting that a fan could have killed themselves at your ballpark?

I’d jump too if I were a Yankee fan!!

Comment by Darren

I’m fairly confident that they wouldn’t have objected to you taking a picture of them. Possibly because there’s no way they could have noticed.

CK posted a Red sox Q, get over to the trivia thing already!

Comment by Chief Slacker

Oh no, that was for sure picture worthy and I’m with JMD they probably wouldn’t have noticed. Holy shit (sorry Finy’s mom for the language) that’s just TOO funny. It’s not cruel because you wouldn’t be making fun of them, more like they were monumental for making that saying come to life!
