Before he had game, John Mayer was a big gamer.

For three years in elementary and junior high school in Fairfield, Conn., the Grammy winner spent almost every afternoon playing Nintendo with his childhood pal, tennis star and Olympian James Blake.

"Just about every day he was at my house, and we'd play Nintendo games, like Joe Montana football, all the time," says Blake, who was in fifth grade when the two became best buds.

"John was pretty good, but I played a bit more than he did," Blake told PEOPLE at Heineken's Share the Good event in New York City on Friday, where he accepted a $10,000 check for the Thomas Blake Sr. Memorial Cancer Research Fund, his charity honoring his late father.

Honoring Blake's father, who died of cancer, the event was hosted by Men's Vogue and featured luxury watches.

"John is a watch guru. He tried on this skeleton watch, which is worth about $10,000, and even asked for our president's card," said Maurice Lacroix watch spokeswoman Fran Pennella.
