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.
