Default Taking after pro's?

Does anyone else here find themselves getting sucked in to taking after pros?
Like, buying their brands/recommending their sponsors more because that's their sponsor than for liking the brand itself beforehand?

I find myself now doing this with Halldor Helgason (just like when I was really into Torstien last winter)
I find myself buying exclusively his sponsors for this year. (Actually all of my stuff is his sponsors except for my gloves[which my new ones are his sponsor neff and are on the way...] and switchback bindings)

Do any of you find yourself doing this? I know it's bad reasons to buy equipment for a sport where the last thing that should matter is who is on their team, but at least thus far none of these choices have let me down.
Emerica should make snowboard boots
