Why I'm getting the needle, plus check out pics of my new haircut, my missus and my cricket box!

ROBBIE'S STORY OF THE WEEK

Here's something you probably don't know about professional footballers - we use acupuncture.

So this is a picture of me and my cricket box (in the slideshow above - ED) getting the needle this week as treatment on my groin strain.

Those needles are about two inches long and they really hurt - so you get a bit nervous beforehand.

Mind you, it's very cruel when you take your trousers down and get told: "Don't worry Robbie - it's only a little prick".

ROBBIE HATES... The wife's burning love for me. The other night she came over to give me a little smooch, and it was certainly hot stuff - she'd forgotten she had a pair of curling tongs in her hand and gave me a big burn on my arm!

ROBBIE LOVES... My wife Sarah. For all those of who who wonder why I put up with a woman who burns my arm, had to ask what 300 x 1 was and who thinks the Welsh rugby team wear green socks to make their legs look like leeks, this picture (in the slideshow above - ED) might give you a clue. She's bloody gorgeous!

Every time I play, I always hear opposing fans shouting "Tweet" at me (well, it sounds like that).

So I've taken their advice and joined Twitter - you can find me by searching for RobbieSavage8 to find out what I'm up to and see more pictures like this one of my brilliant new haircut (in the slideshow above - ED ).

I've also signed up to be an ambassador for Britain’s leading sports online retailer, acasports.co.uk.

And, to celebrate, I’ve got a brand new Adidas World Cup 2010 Jabulani football (the real deal, not a replica) to give away to one lucky reader.

Question: Which country did I used to represent?  Answers please via twitter to @RobbieSavage8. I'll pick a winner will be selected at random.

Last week I told you about having my car 'wrapped'. As you can see, it's now a brilliant white (see pic in the slideshow above - ED ).

Nigel Clough took one look at it in the Derby car park and said, "Did you get a two-for-one on your teeth?"
