If your performance was good before you started taking them, it might have been good or perhaps even better after you started taking them, unless, of course, it turned out to be worse. And if your performance was not so impressive beforehand, it probably wasn't much different afterwards. I'm glad so much time and money was spent to provide such piercing insight. Sarcasm aside, though, at least they had the courage not to redact Roger Clemens's name.
