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

Since I am off today due to the holiday of Shmini Atzeret, here’s the puzzle I missed from last week due to the first day of the holiday of Sukkot.

I pulled out 51D How many people get around town: INACAB because that’s such a stereotypical New York answer. Even in New York, though, do people still take cabs? I mean didn’t the price of New York taxi medallions plummet because everyone takes Lyft or Uber or Via over there? Michael Cohen made that claim many times.

And on the topic of lawyers or former lawyers or whatever, it’s time for the theme!

17A Advocate for U2’s frontman?: PROBONOATTORNEY. Maybe the rest of the attorneys were hired by bandmate The Edge as he attempted to destroy part of California. You know, because the band cares about the environment and poverty and whatever. Suck it, The Edge. And, for that matter, Bono. Try making a song that doesn’t sound like every other one of your songs. Jeez.
27A Swing of a bowler’s arm?: MOVETOSTRIKE. I took bowling class in college. My best score ever was 182 or 186. Maybe 184. I still have my bowling shoes. They have flames that glow in UV light, so you know they go fast.
49A A little tied up at the moment?: MOTIONDENIED. It had looked real bad for a while with the whole Sweetwater Mesa thing, but then he was the one who was denied. In your FACE, The Edge.
65A Attire for gym period?: CLASSACTIONSUIT. It’s like that time there was the class action lawsuit against Red Bull because no one actually got wings. I got money because I was part of the class. Probably better than wings. I distinctly remember buying three cans of Red Bull in college during finals week for my friend Mitchell. The total came to $6.66. I received no wings.

Finished this one in 10:43.
