Saturday Memo: Ferry overload … Casey Kasem to be buried in Norway… Felix pitches today

More like summer: Increasing sun (not clouds) ahead, with a high today near 77. Expect mostly sunny skies on Sunday, with an even warmer Monday.

Whoa, Nelly: A Seattle-bound ferry was overloaded by 484 passengers too many Friday afternoon, a mistake that forced the vessel to return to Bremerton and deposit 484 unlucky passengers back on shore. The less-than-sweet reward for disembarking: a travel voucher and a public apology.

After death, still dueling: The wife of Casey Kasem plans to bury the late radio personality in Norway – against the wishes of his children, a publicist for Kasem’s daughter said Friday. His death followed a lengthy battle over his care between Jean Kasem and his three adult children from his first marriage.

M’s on a tear: The Mariners moved into the second wild-card spot after cruising to a 7-2 win over Detroit. It was the Mariners’ fifth straight win, putting them 11 games over .500. Today’s pitching match-up features two aces: Felix Hernandez and Detroit’s David Price, who have each won an American League Cy Young Award. They play at 4 p.m.

Oh yeah, the Seahawks: The defending Super Bowl champs rolled to a 41-14 win in an exhibition game against San Diego last night. They play at home again in another exhibition game next Friday against the Chicago Bears.
