Notable mention I think would actually be baseball, I know people laugh somtimes and don't think it is a sport but jsut the pure number of games, u play 162, then say it isn't a sport.
As for mental, I would have to say CAr racing. I just think so much concentration must go into it, I mean one wrong move and your hanicap or dead.
The thing about tennis is that they have quite a few stoppages and same with hockey. Soccer on the other hand is 2 45 min halfs of non-stop running. The reason I don't consider baseball a sport is because there is little running and players that are 40+ dominate like Roger Clemens and Barry Bonds.
