Did I just blow a job opportunity?

Best answer: You were 100% in the right. They can't expect you to just get off from your job so quickly. If they don't call back, they obviously aren't fit to be employers and you wouldn't want to work for someone like that

if i were considering hiring you, i would respect the fact that you're being faithful to your obligations with your current employer.

that means that you'll be just as reliable when you come to work for me.

You did the right thing but sadly, it may be possible that the prospective new job may not contact you anymore specially if someone else is available for the time slot that was originally given to you. I'm guessing that you are being considered for the job; hence, the interview invite.
