Google Shows Live Sports Scores In Wrong Order

A complaint in the Google Web Search Help forums has a sports enthusiast pointing out that Google is displaying the live sports scores in the wrong order.

The home team is suppose to show first the searcher said. Another searcher said, this is "Sports 101" knowledge.

As Wikipedia writes, "in any context where a game score or the pair of teams meeting in a game are mentioned, the team mentioned first (left or top) is the home team, except in the U.S. and Canada, where home teams are mentioned second."

Here is a screen shot of the Google result:

In U.S. and Canada, the home team would go on the right or bottom. But here, it goes on the left or top, which is a mistake.
