This has to be a famous quote
 
My family/friends are all familiar with the expression" didn't know whether to shit, go blind, or steal third."

Yet a multiple-engine search comes up with absolutely nothing.

The Internet has failed and all is now meaningless.

I'm going to steal third, I guess.

Per Startpage, the original seems to have come from One Flew over the Cuckoo's Nest.

The "steal third" seems to have crept in somewhere later along the line. Are your family baseball fans?

LQ has a Quotes thread, suggesting a merge.

Correct, there is no record of it anywhere on the internet that Google has tracked.
