They = human? adults? gender relevant?

It=it?

Did it cause pain to 'them'? someone else?

Anything relevant about them? If so, background? family? hobbies? jobs? education? social status? other?

Title relevant? If yes, does "Spirit" mean "Ghost"? Or is the term "Sprirt" used in the usual sense that one associates with this idiom?

Was the pain literal or figurative?
Did it cause pain to all of them? to some of them? to someone else?

Was it amusing and appropriate for a given location? under given circumstances? in a specific time frame?
Would it seem amusing and appropriate to someone who was not part of the group? a real-time observer? a reader of the account?

Did they expect it to happen?
Did it happen as a result of an accident?

Yes, I meant physical in nature, like being hit, not physical vs. mental.

Is the pain caused by over-exercising? wearing wrong type of cloths? drinking something inappropriate?

The element: fire? water? other liquid? air? other gas? ice? biomass ( to borrow from 5 mascots of Chinese Olympics )?

just wanna confirm it is a noun, and not another adjective -simply red, bright red etc?

Is the noun a living thing? If so, animal? Plant? Fungus? Does it represent a group of some kind?

So what's left here? You got sunburned which, while painful for you still seemed appropriate given that your team's name is "Team Red" - and you were wearing something that displayed the name, right?

So what's left here?nothing really, I just hadn't gotten around to posting the spoiler yet You got sunburned which, while painful for you still seemed appropriate given that your team's name is "Team Red" - and you were wearing something that displayed the name, right?well, no.

SPOILER

Some friends of mine hosted what they called the Athens (Georgia) Olympics at their house a couple months ago. There were 25 friends gathered and we were assigned a team color ahead of time, and all wore that color to the games. We competed all day in such events as beach ball volleyball, badminton, water balloon toss, three legged race, dodgeball, limbo, horseshoes, tug of war, etc. Outside all day, eventually I got quite a nice sunburn. It hurt like hell, but me and the rest of team red were amused by the fact that even my skin was in team red spirit!
