Hip-Hop Heavyweights The Game and Bow Wow battled in a game of Madden on Xbox for charity Friday night in Hollywood | Photos by Konsole Kingz

Because there is a Michael Strahan-like gap between the amount of fun had in playing a video game and watching someone else play a video game, the answer I most frequently give when posed with the question "Want to watch two guys play Madden in Hollywood?" is "No."

However, when the two people playing are named Lil' Bow Wow and The Game, I'm going to do my best to get there.

On Friday night I did just that. I gave it my best to make it over to Hollywood night club, Holly's to watch hip-hop heavyweights The Game and Bow Wow play a game of Madden '09 on Xbox 360.

Unfortunately my best was not good enough to get into Hollywood on time; chalk that up to having a job, the traffic that a typical Friday evening brings and a little bit of chaos in the Hollywood and Highland area that might have been caused by Stand Up for Cancer at the Kodak Theater.

Kudos to Konsole Kingz and Xbox for organizing the first hip-hop-related event in the history of hip-hop-related events to ever start on time. I was hoping that it wouldn't start on time, however, and I would have been able to catch all or most of the virtual action.
