Go on, you can say it: Roy Pickler looks just like Santa Claus. He is 6-foot, 306 pounds, giving him the girth he needs when he makes appearances each holiday season as jolly St. Nick. For years, he was able to handle a little excess weight even though he conducted adventure trips for at-risk kids for a living. But he suffered a broken leg recently and was on bed rest. The lack of activity helped him realize that he was hiding behind the red-and-white suit. He still wants to play Santa each holiday season -- but he wants to be able to use a pillow to fill out the costume.
