I'm Seriously Laughing At How The Internet Is Reacting To Team USA Bringing Their Own Air Conditioners To The Olympics

The Olympics start in just a few weeks, and they're being held in Paris during, well, obviously, the middle of the summer.

That means, unfortunately, no AC. The French are notoriously against it.

The French didn't install air conditioners for environmental reasons because they want this to be "the greenest games ever." They're aiming to keep the temperature in rooms between 73 and 79 degrees.

But don't fret, the US isn't going to be airconditioner-less stuck in musty 70-degree rooms!

The AP is reporting that team USA will bring their own AC units to the games.

The CEO of the US Olympic and Paralympic Committee, Sarah Hirshland, said, "As you can imagine, this is a period of time in which consistency and predictability is critical for Team USA’s performance."

"In our conversations with athletes, this was a very high priority and something that the athletes felt was a critical component in their performance capability," she continued.

The reaction to this whole thing has been very, very funny.

"Air conditioning is like water, oxygen, food," this person said.

"Americans and their ACs are a better love story than Romeo and Juliet," another person said.

The overall sentiment is: "Come and take it."

Because I find this one of the few uniting American causes, here are some of the funniest reactions to this whole thing:
