NYT Crossword Puzzle 9-13-21 Complete (contains spoilers)

I pulled out 65A Baseball officials, for short: UMPS because it reminded me of the old joke of what’s the difference between a catcher’s mask and an umpire’s mask? You can see out of the catcher’s mask. And isn’t the commissioner the umpire of the league? By that standard, Rob Manfred is doing a great job. By human standards, though, garbage. Total garbage.

There was a Monday theme! Two puns!

17A Group of Washington politicians?: HOUSEPARTY.
61A Group of big rig haulers?: SEMICIRCLE.

Finished this one in 4:31. If I hadn’t made that one error, I’d have been at 4:04, which still wouldn’t have been my best.
